Long Description:
The original marker reads "He founded the Las Vegas Age newspaper and was the voice of the community for more than a quarter century. A visionary, he helped make Hoover Dam a reality." Freemont Street is very historical, not only for its gambling and amazing night time shows, but for this MIA marker too.
