The Benson Dillon Billinghurst House, at 729 Evans Ave. in Reno, Nevada, was built in 1910. It was a home of educator Benson Dillon Billinghurst, who was superintendent of schools of Washoe County during a long period, from 1908 until his death in 1935. He led innovations such as the introduction of junior high schools. That Nevada's schools were rated second in quality, nationwide, by a 1933 U.S. Department of Education study, was regarded as testament to Billinghust's leadership statewide. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
