El Rancho, Las Vegas, 1952
The El Rancho Las Vegas was a hotel designed with a western “cowboy” by Wayne McAllister, and originally included 65 rooms, located in cottages spread across the property. The El Rancho opened on April 3, 1941, with an Old West theme.
The resort proved to be a success, which prompted the opening of other resorts on Highway 91, eventually transforming it into the Las Vegas Strip.
The El Rancho added an all-you-can-eat buffet in the 1940s, popularizing the buffet concept in Las Vegas.
The pioneering hotel burned down in 1960.
