Las Vegas’ Neon Museum will significantly expand the number of electrified signs on view in its “Boneyard” exhibition space when it adds Anderson Dairy’s “Andy” Anderson, The Red Barn, Chief Hotel Court and Nevada Motel signs this month.
Along with Dot’s Flowers, installed in the Boneyard this summer, these signs were all previously displayed on Third Street just north of The Fremont Experience, but have been in storage in recent years. Installation was set to begin this week and will take approximately 10 days to complete. Upon completion, the Boneyard will be home to 16 fully restored, electrified signs.
“The addition of these iconic signs helps not only further illuminate our iconic exhibition space, but also enhances the visitor’s experience by adding to the historical breadth represented in the Boneyard,” said Tracey Sprague, collections manager, Neon Museum. “Each of these new signs has a unique background and origin highlighting how Southern Nevada’s commercial history spans everything – from the wholesome to the salacious.
