West Charleston Boulevard is in West Las Vegas' main street, located in the downtown area. It extends from West Lake Mead Boulevard on the east to I-15 on the west, about 3 miles long. Also, it has mostly residential areas with historically significant landmarks, churches, schools, and businesses interspersed among them.
The community was founded by residents of "Old" Las Vegas who wished to form a town with modern amenities which would eventually become West Las Vegas. The Town of West Las Vegas was incorporated on January 17, 1911, but remained part of Clark County until the summer of 1936 when it became an independent county-level governmental entity. Westside High School was originally known as West Las Vegas High School - reflecting that it served West Las Vegas until Westside High School was opened in the 1950s and West Las Vegas High became Westside Junior High (now West Career and Technical Academy). Similarly, West Side Elementary School (formerly West Las Vegas Elementary) is located within the West Charleston Boulevard corridor. Learn More Here
