Las Vegas Neon Sign Graveyard. Founded in 1996, the Neon Museum is a non-profit3 organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, studying and exhibiting iconic Las Vegas signs for educational, historic and cultural enrichment.
Just off Highway 95, about halfway between Las Vegas and Reno, lies the sleepy desert town of Tonopah. For many, the town is just another oasis to fuel up in the middle of the desert, but one building at the edge of town offers more than just gasoline... it offers nightmare fuel. Tremble in fear at the most terrifying motel in the world: The Clown Motel.
The Nevada Motel sign dates circa 1950. Its original location was 5t Street and Garces in Las Vegas. An important feature is the first appearance of the image known as “Vegas Vic”. It was restored by The Neon Museum and installed November 15, 2000.
