Jun 10 16
At the north end of Las Vegas Boulevard lies the resting place for a few hundred neon signs that over the decades have graced all manner of hotels, casinos and businesses in Las Vegas. Dubbed the Boneyard, this two-acre lot has evolved into what we now call the Neon Museum. To tour the Boneyard is to take a step back into Las Vegas history because every twist of neon tubing evokes an era and every sign has its own story to tell. I was at the Neon Museum recently to see those famous signs and hear some of those stories. I spent time with Dawn Merritt, the Neon Museum’s public relations and marketing director. Afterwards, I ventured out into the Boneyard with the Museum’s collections manager and historian, Maggie Zakri. Please welcome Dawn and Maggie to the show.
