Las Vegas Vintage Images - El Rancho and Fremont Street

The venerable El Rancho resort Las Vegas hotel was one of the most popular Las Vegas hotels in its time, attracting glamorous Hollywood headliners and gaming enthusiasts. In 1960, the El Rancho burned to the ground in a spectacular, fast-moving fire. In this Early Vegas gallery, we feature photos of the El Rancho Hotel in Las Vegas in its heyday, as well as the blaze that ended the El Rancho era. You'll also find classic photos of the early Fremont Street in Downtown Las Vegas.
