Tina Smith

Tina Smith was a founding member of the Henderson Historical Society. Being an eyewitness to Henderson history from its earliest days she was a great resource to the fledgling organization.

She came to the Society with a sense of community and a long personal history of volunteerism in Henderson including at St. Rose Dominican Hospital, and as an advocate for the preservation of the Governor’s mansion in Carson City. She was a Charter member of the Clark County Museum and served as its President from 1985-1987. She was the last living founding member of the Museum. While working with the Museum, Tina was in charge of the renovation of the Townsite House and the Museum’s annual fundraiser. Among her accomplishments at the Museum was her leadership in the renovation of the Townsite homes that are such a valuable part of the museums collection.

She was honored by the Clark County Commission with an award for Outstanding Leadership. Governor Richard Bryan named her to the “Honor Roll of Excellence” for her volunteerism. She was also a recipient of the Elmer Anderson Award for Special Projects.
