The History of the Las Vegas Sign
The famous “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign was developed in 1959, and since then, it has become a symbol of the Las Vegas Strip. Betty Willis, the designer, was commissioned to create a sign that was unique in shape, style, and content, and she delivered an image that now resonates with anyone who visits Las Vegas. The design itself was never copyrighted because Willis wanted it to be her gift to the city. That is why you’ll find countless replicas of the 25 foot sign throughout the state of Nevada.
