    Is there any list (preferably on a map) of every location's history and names since the land was first bought?

    I know there's a few websites that list the current and most recent names. but I can't find anything that has a complete list all in one map.

    I did not realize there were many folks interested in these types of information. Here is another one I kept as a favorite. It has facts, tidbits and other information of Las Vegas. Enjoy!

    Historical Las Vegas Strip Casino Map

    http://home.earthlink.net/~cyberlane/vegasmap.html

    It's a few years out of date but still a good reference for date and location info on all the casinos that operated along the Strip from 1941 up until the late 1990s. It also shows the ownership successions of each casino that resulted in a new name change.

    absolutely. And I think even people who are not interested in this info, will be if they check it out! Thanks for posting this one too!


    Yeah, the John-UK one took me about a week to get all the way through. I loved it. I wish he would post some trip reports on here :D
