Mesquite in Clark County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Hughes and Frehner Store Circa early 1920s. The Hughes and Frehner Store was built on this site after the land was purchased from the LDS Church. The building was later converted to the Valley Inn Bar and then rebuilt, using the same cement walls, as the Golden West Restaurant and Casino.
Howard Pulsipher Home Circa 1923. The Pulsiphers converted a granary from the old tithing lot into a 1-room home next to the Hughes and Frehner Store. Within a year they had outgrown it and Howard built a new one on the same lot. It was concrete, plastered inside and out. This was the first home in the Virgin Valley to have running water and a bathtub inside.
