There is a great interest in the historic homes of Las Vegas – the fourth annual Home + History Las Vegas event will be held April 27-29 by the Nevada Preservation Society.

This year the Nevada Preservation Foundation is including a tour of the famous underground 15,000 square feet home that was built as a bomb shelter. The home will have a very rare showing on April 28 as part of the event.  This bomb shelter was built in 1978 and is 26 feet below ground – however it is not considered a basement.

Jerry and Mary Henderson built this shelter – its style is midcentury with two bedrooms. The grounds of this underground home include a putting green, pool, Jacuzzi, barbeque area and a casita. There are murals to look at when you look through the windows of the home.

The event has grown to 15 separate events that include lectures on architecture and other informative gatherings.  The event incorporates a double-decker bus tour through the history of neon in Las Vegas and a walking tour through the first historic district of Las Vegas – showcasing residential styles from the 1930s to 1950s.

Each part of the weekend events have tickets for sale you can go to https://nevadapreservation.org/hhlv/  for the entire selection.  Each year there are new homes on the tour to keep it fresh for those that attend each year.  Michelle Larime, the foundations associate director stated “We’re looking to create a good variety and showcase multiple time periods of the 1940’s through the 1970s and the different ways people live in the houses.”

Keep in mind that whether you are interested in buying a home or selling a home, a Realtor should represent you– this person is working for your benefit and will help you navigate through the buying or selling process.  I have thirteen years in New Home Sales and fifteen years in General Real Estate sales!
