About the Neon Museum:

The Neon Museum and Boneyard is a non-profit group comprised of its collection of restored, vintage Vegas neon signs and  its world-famous “boneyard” of non-restored vintage Vegas neon signs.

The Neon Museum officially “opened” with the installation of its first refurbished sign, the Hacienda Horse and Rider, at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Fremont Street.

Today, the Neon Museum’s refurbished signs are displayed and can be viewed in downtown Las Veags as public art and visited on a self-guided tour twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Signs are located on Las Vegas Boulevard North, Fremont Street, and 3rd Street. The gallery includes, among others, The Flame Restaurant, Chief Court Motel, Andy Anderson, The Silver Slipper, Binion’s Horseshoe, The Red Barn, Nevada Motel and Dot’s Flowers, the Landmark and 5th Street liquors.

Most of the Museum’s signs are exhibited in “The Boneyard” where they serve as inspiration to fascinated artists, students, historians and designers.  The Boneyard is home to some of the most treasured and world-famous signs of Las Vegas – Caesars Palace, Binions Horseshoe, the Golden Nugget  and the Stardust. The two-acre campus which includes the Neon Boneyard houses more than 150 historic signs. As part of guided tours, the signs are available to be viewed at ground level and up close. Each has been donated or loaned by individuals, businesses and sign companies such as the Young Electric Sign Company (YESCO).

The Neon Museum visitors’ center is located inside the historic La Concha Motel lobby.  This distinctive shell-shaped building was designed by acclaimed architect Paul Revere Williams. The curvilinear La Concha Motel lobby is a striking example of Mid-Century modern design characterized by Atomic- and Space Age shapes and motifs. Originally constructed in 1961 on Las Vegas Boulevard South (next to the Riviera Hotel), the La Concha lobby was saved from demolition in 2005 and moved in 2006 to its current location to serve as the museum’s Visitors’ Center. References to many of the lobby’s original interior design elements have been included in the newly refurbished facility, with two of the motel’s original signs – the mosaic lobby sign and a section of the main roadside sign – restored and illuminated as part of the museum’s rehabilitation efforts. Administrative, educational, research and event facilities are housed inside a new addition located behind the main lobby.

Come on Out to Good Springs Days

Just a quick note to let you all know that Good Springs Days is this weekend, September 24, 2011.  At, where else?  good Springs.  you know where it is.  that little town out by Jean.

Ok, maybe you never went out there, but as a good tour professional, you should.  it’s a very historical little spot on the map.  it even has a store that was literally bought out of the Sears and Roebuck Catalog!!

History!

The town is named for Joseph Good, whose cattle frequented a spring nestled in the southeastern foothills of the Spring Mountains, Goodsprings was once the heart of the most productive mining districts in Clark County. Over the years, lead, silver, copper, zinc, gold and silver have all been mined from this area. Before 1900, a small cluster of tent cabins and a mill were erected, a post office was opened, and Lincoln County established Goodsprings Township. In 1904, Salt Lake City mining interests platted the Goodsprings Township. Most early buildings in the town were constructed during the boom spurred by the railroad in 1910-1911.

Goodsprings is currently the home of the Pioneer Saloon, considered to be one of the oldest saloons in Nevada (over 90 years old). The saloon houses a bullet hole on the side of the building and a coroner’s letter describing how it was created. The saloon is said to be “haunted” by the victim’s ghost by many. In addition, the Pioneer Saloon has a small memorial to both Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. Ms. Lombard’s plane TWA Flight 3 crashed into nearby Potosi Mountain on January 16, 1942. The saloon and hotel were the centers of operations for the search. The accident resulted in her death.
