Description

Curious about the origins of Las Vegas?  On this tour, we’ll make Las Vegas history a walk in the park!  This tour brings alive three chapters of Kiel Ranch and its colorful history spanning - you guessed it! - divorce, murder, and Las Vegas high society! Return to the shoot 'em up days of Las Vegas before the glitz and glamour of the gaming culture. Hear about how murder played a significant role in early Las Vegas, the importance of the sprawling ranch and orchards that once were Kiel Ranch, and of course the years when Keil Ranch was better known as The Boulderado Dude Ranch where quickie divorces were a plenty! The entire story of the cowboy days of Las Vegas will be told by founding mother Mrs. Helen Stewart. Join Mrs. Stewart for a stroll of her former ranch then take a seat shaded from the desert sun for some lemonade and more stories of Divorce, Murder, and High Society.
