ABSTRACT
The article reports on the listing of the iconic Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas neon sign in the National Register of Historic Places. The design was created by Betty Whitehead Willis of Western Neon, which won a 1959 county bid for $4,000. The location of the sign is on the median of Las Vegas Boulevard. Work on a median parking lot for photo-seeking tourists was completed by Clark County in January 2009.
