Editorial: The lion's fate

-A A +A
By The Staff

We’re glad to see MainStreet Las Vegas taking a proactive approach to a longtime New Town statue, the lion fountain at Grand and Lincoln Avenues. The fountain itself has long been out of order, and now the statue is deteriorating. Unless something is done, Las Vegas will lose yet another piece of its history.

The lion fountain was built in the late 1890s as an alternative watering hole to the infamous saloons that filled New Town during those Wild West days. Preserving it is a matter of civic pride.
