We can't believe it's already August! We are especially excited about the grand opening on the 27th of the recently rehabilitated Historic Westside School in Las Vegas. The Mission Revival school was constructed in 1923 and a Ranch style annex was added in 1948. The school served predominantly Native American and African American residents of Old Town, which later became known as the Westside. Although the 1954 decision in the U.S. Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education declared that laws establishing separate schools for black and white students were unconstitutional, public education in Las Vegas remained segregated. The school closed in 1967 and was underused until now. Check out the video below to get a sneak peek of the work!
