Own a little piece of history....
The New Frontier Hotel and Casino was located on the Las Vegas Strip that had operated continuously since October 30, 1942. Actually located within the unincorporated suburb of Paradise, Nevada, it was the second resort that opened on the Las Vegas Strip.
The property started as a nightclub called Pair-O-Dice that opened in 1930, then The Ambassador Night Club in 1936 and was renamed the 91 Club in 1939 for its location on US - 91. It was subsequently rebuilt and renamed the "Hotel Last Frontier" in 1942. On April 4, 1955, it was renamed the New Frontier, following a modernization of the resort.
The resort had the distinction of hosting Elvis Presley's first Vegas appearance in 1956, and the final performance of Diana Ross and the Supremes on January 14, 1970.
On September 22, 1967, the resort was purchased for about $14 million by businessman Howard Hughes, who then shortened its name to "The Frontier". Mr. Hughes purchased the resort from the previous owners, which had also included Steve Wynn, with a 5% interest, in one of his early ventures when he first moved to the Las Vegas area. (Wynn indicated that he did not know that the other owners had mob connections.)
The New Frontier closed its doors on July 16, 2007, and demolished by implosion on November 13th.
This vintage brass keychain is a great souvenir from this famous Las Vegas Casino, and would be the perfect gift for the gambler in your lift, or for that someone who was around back in the day to see the Frontier in person.
