The Railroad Cottage Historic District, in Las Vegas, Nevada, was constructed by the San Pedro, Los Angeles & Salt Lake Railroad to provide housing for the railroad's workers.[1]

History

This empty lot was where the last group of cottages were either demolished or removed; the only remaining cottage is behind the white fence. As of December 2010, nothing had been constructed on the empty lot.

A total of 64 cottages were constructed from 1900-1912 in three different styles.[2] The three bedroom model offered 812 sq ft (75.4 m2) and the two bedroom house contained 768 sq ft.[1]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 22, 1987.[3][4][5]

One building was moved to the Clark County Museum in 2002.[1] Several additional buildings were moved in 2006 to the Las Vegas Springs Preserve.[1]
