Las Vegas City History - 1905 - Senator Clark's railroad is completed, and plans are announced for auctioning off lots on his town site.
May 15: On reduced railroad tickets people travel from Los Angeles and Salt Lake City to buy Las Vegas lots at Senator Clark's auction. Las Vegas is born as Clark sells 600 lots for $265,000.
