LDS Tours in Las Vegas | LDS Tours in Cancun
Alma’s LDS Tours invites you to learn the history of our church in the state of Nevada. The first report of Mormon residents in the area occurs in 1855, when thirty missionaries from Salt Lake City were sent to Vegas to establish a colony and protect the mail route from Los Angeles. The pioneers built a fort and worked in agricultural work, but this first settlement was abandoned three years later because of Indian raids.
In 1865 came to Las Vegas a new colony that was stronger each year. Currently the population is 15% Mormon. The original fort is part of a historic park that is located at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard North and Washington Avenue. Alma’s LDS Tours invites you to visit also recreations of gardens and courtyards of the pioneers.
