Westside School Restoration Signals Revitalization Of The Neighborhood

The Westside School sits in the shadow of the I-15, among a plethora of black churches, residences and industrial areas. When the school was built in 1923, none of that existed.The original school was built for Paiute school children, whose reservation is just a few blocks away.Then it became predominantly African-American during Las Vegas’ segregation days in the mid-20th Century.When that changed in the late 1960s, the school turned into a radio station, and a pre-school.
