Ormsby House Logo

Dave Frank at the Nevada Appeal has a story today about the history of the Ormsby House logo, the rose-in-gun symbol that’s hung off the building from the day it opened. The logo was meant to represent the “mild Wild West” theme of the hotel back in 1972, when it was opened by former governor Paul Laxalt. The logo was then put on everything, the hotel itself, matchbooks, ashtrays, Keno tickets, brochures and postcards. And now it’s being put back on the property, both on the long-suffering Ormsby-Winchester Club and on the main sign. I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of it as time goes on.
