Fifth Street School
This graceful Mission-Style complex was built by the federal government in 1936 to replace the Las Vegas elementary school, which burned down in 1934. In 1973, Clark County remodeled the building as an annex to the nearby courthouse. Currently owned by the City of Las Vegas, the Fifth Street School is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
