Episode #18 of the Nevada Magazine radio show features an interview with Noel Sheckells, owner of the historic Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings, located about 40 miles southwest of Las Vegas (skip ahead to 14:00 to hear the interview with Sheckells).
The Pioneer Saloon is celebrating its centennial year throughout 2013 via a number of signature events. "Our grand finale with a drum roll is on October 19," Sheckells says. "We're unveiling a historical marker sign that is going to be magnificent. People have donated money in increments of $25 to have their name on this sign." There will be about 1,500 names on the sign, according to Sheckells, who says that about 1,300 names have been secured. Call 702-874-9362 ASAP if you're interested in donating.
