There used to be a fascinating website on the history of Las Vegas. I originally found it on here using the link below. However, it now takes you to a totally different website. Does anybody know what happened to the History of Las Vegas website?

Looks like the domain was dropped (not renewed) and a domain broker registered it. The site that's there now is a generic template that these brokers put up on thousands of domains. The original site is gone.

You can find an archived version of that page here:

Oh man, that's a huge loss. If he didn't want to pay for hosting anymore (or if, God forbid, something happened to him, I wish someone would have contacted one of us to pay for hosting) He did such an amazing job with that site.

I have it downloaded on my PC I did a text document so I suggest if you get a copy of it download it and save it in your documents. The owner of the LV History lives in Britain (England) http://john-uk.com/Icons/LVBLUE.ico That is all I know. I can send it to anyone's E-Mail if you so desire just DM me. I just went to the link above and did not get the LV History so do not use it someone else has bought the domain name. Did anyone send this person a DM to see if he is still alive or that he bought a new domain name and moved it there. Domain names are a business and if you have one that a person wants you can sell it to them it is a big business on the net. Google it the history is quite amazing and the money involved is even more amazing.

I have his DM information. He has not posted here, but he did come here to read the posts about those who loved his website. He contacted me specifically because I really raved about the site He gave me his personal email and I have sent him a message but have not gotten an response.

I found it, but its a little quirky. Don't know how long it will be there,
I D/L'd it and saved it as html file to my desktop and it worked.

Great job finding it. Thank you.

How did you save it to your desktop? It is many jpeg and JScript files. I can save the files but the links don't work.

Click file then save page as..
It will save as html file. Which is nothing more than a "shortcut"to web page..

I am in-process of printing a hard-copy now.. Takes a while sinse it almost 500 pages.

Then I will scann all pages as a ginormous PDF file...
