500 E. Washington Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89101, United States

The first non-native permanent settlement in the Valley, the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort was established by Mormon missionaries in 1855. Located downtown off Washington Avenue, the remains of the 150-square-foot adobe fort are now part of a state historic site, which also features a full reconstruction of the building, interpretive displays, and a visitor center with a short film and exhibits on the history of the fort. Special events include occasional Soldiers of the Fort demos, Settlement Day in June, and Pioneer Christmas in December. Admission is $1 for adults and free for children 12 and under.
