Long Description:
Located at the Neon Museum and outside in their 'Boneyard' are many vintage neon signs, many which are restored and light up. This 1962 neon sign is just one segment of a large wall of H’s that adorned Binion’s Horseshoe on Fremont Street (today known as Binion’s). There's a small bronze plaque near the sign that reads:

Created in 1962 by architects Wayne McCallister and William Wagner and YESCO design staff. The three-story concave panel of interlocking neon "H" elements formed the corner bullnose for the casino's facade on Fremont Street. At the time, the Horseshoe facade claimed to be the largest use of neon worldwide, with more than 8 miles of tubing.

The "H" wall was sponsored and restored with the funding provided by the Robert S. and Dorothy J. Keyser Foundation.

This sign is one of a number that light up and it is located on the south wall of the Neon Museum building.
