Circa 1917

On this site was one of the first rest-over businesses in the Virgin Valley. Here an early version of an adobe brick house was used as a small grocery store with a separate wash house that had shower and laundry facilities, and a way station (campground) for freighters and travelers. Hay was also sold to those traveling by horse drawn wagons and buggies.

Mesquite Fine Arts Center
In 2003 the City of Mesquite broke ground to build this complex as a center of activity for the fine arts in the Virgin Valley. The design won several awards and is a milestone for culture in the community.
