Boulder City Historic District Self-Guided Tour from Las Vegas
When people think of Boulder City, NV they often picture the Boulder Dam. However, a much smaller site in Las Vega is becoming more popular. It's called the Boulder City Historic District Self-Guided Tour located at 409 Monument Street. The site includes an archive of historic photos and maps dating back to the 1850’s to 1920’s and information on some of the first settlers that came to Vegas because of silver discoveries in nearby Silver Mountain Mining District.
The path of the Boulder City Historic District Self-Guided Tour starts with a map at the Morris Levee. This is where most of the historic buildings are located. There are also some that are not included in the tour so be sure to check out all of them.
The self-guided tour begins in front of Old City Hall on a well preserved portion of Route 93 which was paved in 1938.
The Historic Boulder City District was designated a National Register Historic District in November 2009. The Boulder City Historic District and the E.L. Wiegand Store are both located within the National Register of Historic Places Las Vegas/Clark County Multiple Resource Area which was designated on December 16, 2006.
Sunday July 29, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. is the Boulder City Historic District Self-Guided Tour and you can find out more about the event on Facebook at 'Boulder City Historic District self-guided tour' . The self-guided tour will include a pickle park, historic photographs, self-guiding booklets and tours provided by the LVHDA staff and volunteers who will be wearing uniforms in different colors for easy identification.
