Site of the oldest non-native buildings in Las Vegas.
- Before Bugsy Siegel made it to town, the Mormon Church created this tiny settlement in 1855. It boasts the oldest European-American building in Nevada. The site was purchased by the State of Nevada in 1990 and restored as a state park. Tours are now available that outline the harsh life that the first settlers endured. The place was once a rest stop for those heading to California to seek their fortune during the gold rush.
