The Las Vegas Municipal Building was constructed as a WPA project beginning in 1939 and completed in 1940.

The building was constructed of locally quarried stone as opposed to the more customary adobe and stucco. The project provided work for unemployed local workers.

The building is now used for municipal courts and for the City of Las Vegas Museum and Rough Rider Memorial Collection.
