Created in1962 by architects Wayne McCallister and William Wagner and YESCO design staff. The three-story concave panel of interlocking neon "H" elements formed the corner bullnose for the casino's fašade on Fremont Street.

The "H" wall was sponsored and restored with funding provided by the Robert S. and Dorothy J. Keyser Foundation.
