Railroad Cottages Moved for First Phase of Restoration
News

 

A group of historic railroad cottages have been moved again to their final destination inside the Springs Preserve.

The cottages were moved to the preserve in 2006 to avoid destruction. Now, they’re being moved again for the first phase of their restoration.

Between 1909 and 1911, the cottages were constructed to house mid-level workers from the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad. When they were first built, they sat between Second Street, which is now Casino Center, and Fourth Street, and Graces and Clark streets.

The cottages were one of the first track developments in the western United States, and they were an important part of the development of downtown Las Vegas.

When the project is finished, the cottages will depict life in Las Vegas in the early part of the 20th century with interior exhibits, a recreated town site and store fronts, as well as an historic train depot.

The project is set to be finished next spring.
