Las Vegas may not be aged, but that doesn’t mean it lacks in history.
The city housed many famous musicians in the mid-20th century when their stardom put the small desert town in the limelight. In fact, one of those homes is on its way to obtaining historical protections. Wayne Newton’s former residence, Casa de Shenandoah, is a client of the nonprofit Nevada Preservation Foundation. Newton designed the home, which still reflects the architectural trends of the ’60s and ’70s. Acquired in 1965, the roughly 50-acre ranch estate eventually included a zoo, an equestrian pool for his famous Arabian horses, a car museum with his collection of classic vehicles, a jet terminal and a total of eight homes on-site. More recently, Casa de Shenandoah served as a tourist destination complete with tours and frequent drop-ins by the musical legend himself.
