‘Ancients’ Discovered Las Vegas before the Mob

The 180-acre Springs Preserve in Las Vegas, home to a desert living center, nature trails, and soon-to-be home of our springspreserve1new Nevada State Museum, has made a monumental discovery:  Archaeologists reportedly found last week the remains of a 1,500-year-old prehistoric community on the property.  Sadly, though, no buried gold coins have yet been found.

And you thought Sin City was just the brainchild of mobster Bugsy Siegel? 

Las Vegas, apparently, now has a true cultural past- not just the Mob to thank for our existence.  Well, you read it here on Vegas Backstage Access; more updates will be provided as details emerge- or should we say, unearthed.
