The Neon Boneyard

Established in 1996, The Neon Boneyard is a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting and preserving Las Vegas’ authentic art form…the neon signs.   Signs date from  l930 to the 1990’s and represent hotels, resorts, casinos and local businesses.

While the park is not open to the general public, special arrangements can be made to tour and photograph the memorabilia.  It’s quite an experience to be in the presence of signs that lit up the strip when the Rat Pack and Elvis were headlining in Vegas.

The signs are no longer electrified but their magnitude and structure are more than enough to testify to the power they once held.   You can notice the changes in sign technology, finishes, fittings, etc…with time having taken its toll but only enriching their mystigue.

Please feel free to visit my online gallery to see the full collection.  If you’d like to order a print, feel free to drop me an email and I can arrange the size, shipping, etc.   They are truly a unique piece of art.
