    I've been to Las Vegas regularly for nearly 25 years but had never visited the State Park. It is an urban area of North Las Vegas, but inside the walls of the Fort, it is still of earlier eras. The admission was just $3, so well worth it. The exhibit hall traced the areas prehistoric, early inhabitant and European visitors to the area from the Spanish Jesuit parties, through the Mormon immigration, farming, and the railroads. Interesting to view the short (15 minute film) and various exhibits in an air conditioned building, The grounds are of less interest, but the Las Vegas creek (or its artificial facsimile?) is still there running through the fort grounds.

    Well worth a quick visit.

    Made the mistake of driving to the Moccasin Rd. access point, which meant I didn't get the stamp in my national park passport book. 😥 The rock pavements were harder than I had expected and formed interesting shapes. Some were little worm-like tubes. Given how much dog crap was along the trail, I couldn't help but wonder if those odd tubes were fossilized feces! Great temperature in the evening. Must be a frying pan during the day... Bring water and a hat!

    Back in the days when Las Vegas was segregated, Harrison House was the place to stay for black entertainers, visitors, and more. The home still stands in the historic West Las Vegas neighborhood and is slowly and lovingly being restored ay a dedicated group of folks.

    Tours are available by request; donations are welcomed. You can hear about the area's history and see the rooms where luminaries like Nat King Cole and Sammy stayed. Lots of memorabilia on display.

    The area once boasted many black-owned casinos and showrooms. Harrison House gives an interesting glimpse of a time not so long ago, when things were different.

    Katherine gave me a one on one tour and was just amazing. I knew about this spot from my late father. A music teacher, he had colleagues who'd stopped here in the 50's.
    I am very, very glad I visited. Thank you for the look back at history.

    We attended a wedding held at the Historic Fifth Street School. It was just the right size for a wedding of forty or fifty people. The open space was large enough to serve as wedding chapel, dinner seating, and buffet. We walked around the grounds to get a feel for the original use of the buildings. Great photographic art on the walls!

    My friends got married at this place on 11-11-11. We had the wedding at 1pm and the reception there at 6pm. The wedding itself was so beautiful, the room that they got married in is spectacular, you have to google it and look at the pictures of the staircases coming down. We were treated very well by the entire staff, at one point at the reception we realized that an important box had been left at the hotel valet, one of the beautiful staff members got on the phone and spent 40 mins trying to help us find this box. The reception area around the pool was very classy, and again the staff took good care of us. The only complaint I had was the food, I wasnt fussy on, although my sister thought it was fine, I thought for the price they charged for catering it could have been better. I would suggest seeing if you could try it before the event and deciding if you wanted to find someone else to cater it. The venue itself was amazing with lots of character, and wonderful staff. Near the end they took some of us on a tour of the rest of the house and told some wonderful stories. Thank you for a great wedding hartland mansion.
