The original was built on grounds of Hotel Last Frontier in 1947, on the Strip at what is now the intersection of Genting Blvd, across from the Encore. The station & neon sign, demolished in the mid 60s.

Even the gas station was Old West-themed. The neon sign on this place from 1947 was the first big, animated neon display on the Strip. This was located at today's Resorts World Drive.

Last Frontier's builders took Las Vegas' first travel slogan "Still a Frontier Town" and built a hotel/casino/amusement park around the concept, including postcards like this showing a horse-drawn carriage on Hwy 91. This view today would be facing the Wynn & Encore.

Circa 1990 at @PlazaLasVegas. They had a railroad hand cart there, reference to the hotel site once being the railroad depot.
