I am writing to let you know how much we enjoy and appreciate reading “Nuestra Historia” in the Las Vegas Optic. In the early 1950s, about 100 families from Las Vegas, N.M., came to Las Vegas, Nev., to work in the early stages of the atomic testings in Nevada.
Most of us are in our 60s, 70s and 80s. We all enjoy reading the Optic.
I lived in Old Town 1932-1941 on Rincon Street. In 1941, we moved to New Town on Eighth Street to a neighborhood called La Placita de Los Maestas. I had the honor of attending Castle School.
