The text on the marker reads:

Welcome
The Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign debuted on the Las Vegas Strip in 1959 and today it remains one of the most popular attractions in Clark County, appearing in countless vacation photos, commercials and movies. The sign was designed by Betty Willis (1923-2015). The County paid $4,000 for the sign, which is located about four miles south of the Las Vegas city limits in an unincorporated part of Clark County. The sign was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009 to coincide with Clark County’s centennial celebration. In 2014, the County collaborated with several organizations, including Green Chips, Clean Energy Project and the Consumer Electronics Association, to install the solar panels here. The panels provide enough electricity to completely offset the energy used by the sign. Thank you for visiting our world-famous landmark.
