Historical marker proposal for downtown Las Vegas seeks funding Mick Akers, Las Vegas Sun · July 26, 2018 at 5:00 am A stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard downtown will eventually pay tribute to the history of the street names in the area. Las Vegas plans to install 20 signs at 10 streets — two on adjacent corners of each street — with information on the people for whom the streets are named, including their cultural and historical significance. The marker sites will be located between Hoover and Stewart avenues — a stretch that includes Fremont Street — according to documents to be reviewed at next week’s Centennial Commission meeting. The office of cultural affairs is requesting $144,735 from the commission to fund the projects. The people proposed to be featured on the signs include: John C. Fremont, Helen J. Stewart, Jim Bridger, Peter S. Ogden, William Clark, Herbert Hoover, Francisco Garces, Octavius Decatur Gass, Meriwether Lewis and Benjamin-Louis-Eulalie de Bonneville.
