A sneak preview

For two months last fall, Las Vegans and their supporters passionately voted every day in an online contest, and $150,000 was awarded to MainStreet de Las Vegas from The National Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express to create a E. Romero Fire House museum honoring our volunteer firemen and the Acequia Madre.

Last week, New Image Construction, Inc. was awarded a construction bid for the museum. ECC Solar will help power the building by installing nine solar panels on the roof.
