News & PoliticsThe City of Las Vegas: The Forties

Tune in now for the “The City of Las Vegas: The Forties.” The latest documentary on the history of Las Vegas from Boyd Productions delves into the 1940’s. It is a time historians say the city grew in population, tourism and organized crime. We take you back to that formative decade and hear how the start of the war brought our city together and brought in workers and military from across the country. We hear how the end of the war catapulted our tourism. We also hear how it was the decade when organized crime made a place for itself in Las Vegas.

This is the fourth documentary chronicling our city’s history. Catch up on the other episodes here:
