The Cottonwoods, c. 1937, pre-Las Vegas Strip

The auto court (service station and cabins) was one of the first on Hwy 91 directly south of the city, opening in the early 30s in the area of today’s Wynn, Palazzo, or Venetian. Cottonwoods aka Stafford Auto Court appears in listings from ‘33-47 without an address. One listing says, “opp. Red Rooster Nite Club.” A passing glimpse of the Cottonwoods can also be seen in color film c. early 40s.

Photo from the collection of Iva MacDonald (seen here), who worked at The Cottonwoods right out of high school, courtesy of Stu MacDonald.
