The hotel and casino with the oldest active gaming license in Southern Nevada was honored this month with a commemorative plaque from the historical preservation group E Clampus Vitus.railroad-pass-today

Railroad Pass Hotel & Casino, 2800 S. Boulder Highway, is located in Henderson on the drive between Las Vegas and Boulder City. Many tourists pass the historic casino while on their way to visit Hoover Dam. Railroad Pass opened on August 1, 1931, right around the same time that construction began on Hoover Dam.

Although it has the fourth gaming license issued in the state of Nevada, the first, second and third licensees are long gone, making Railroad Pass the longest operating casino in the state.
