"Originally located at 2955 Las Vegas Blvd. South, the sweeping Googie arches of the La Concha Motel lobby defined on era. Built in 1961 by the Doumani Family, architect Paul R. Williams was the first African-American member of the American Institute of Architects. Planned for demolition, the Doumani family instead promised the building to the Neon Museum in 2005. In 2006 the shell was relocated, and in 2007 the building was reassembled at its new home. The historic La Concha lobby now serves as the visitor center for the Neon Museum."
