Vegas courthouse: The next big thing?

LAS VEGAS -- Next time clients are visiting Las Vegas you might want to suggest they visit the Las Vegas Post Office and Courthouse. Seriously.

The post office and courthouse have been listed in the State Register of Historic Places by the Board of Museums and History and city plans to turn the building into a museum and cultural center.

The post office and courthouse, built in 1933, is widely considered one of the city's best preserved and most important pieces of depression-era architecture.

In addition, the building was the site of the 1950 Kefauver hearings into organized crime, which brought national attention to Nevada's gambling laws.
