Save La Concha from Demolition!

La Concha is an historic 1961 motel from the Golden Era of the Las Vegas. Las Vegas Strip designed by one of America's FIRST preeminent African American architects, Paul R. Williams. It may be the most significant piece of Mid Century Modern architecture left in Las Vegas and has become the symbol of classic Las Vegas history.

The structure and pool have ALREADY been demolished, but the exquisite front cast concrete conch shell lobby is still standing... for now...
