This general area was originally historically known as “Southside,” due to it’s being “south” and east of the original township. The map of 1952 Las Vegas shows where the city ended before Francisco Square was built. My how things have changed!
The very first Francisco Park development – Francisco Park I was a neighborhood of roughly 150 duplex homes built in 1954. (Currently 149 remain!!!)
The original rare duplex homes within the original “SQUARE” footprint are easily the most desirable of all Francisco Park homes.
A Neighborhood with a Very Distinguished Pedigree
Most residents of these homes currently may have no idea that they are living in a house with a distinguished architectural pedigree with homes designed by “Case Study House” architects, Jones and Emmons, prestigious AIA “Fellows.”
AIA Fellows are recognized with the AIA’s highest membership honor for their exceptional work and contributions to architecture and society. The prestige of FAIA after your name is unparalleled and the judging is rigorous. Architects who have made significant contributions to the profession and society and who exemplify architectural excellence can become a member of the AIA College of Fellows. Only 3 percent of the AIA members have this distinction.
