Fun Fact: In 1952, the famous film director and casino mogul Howard Hughes purchased land in Southern Nevada. Because he did this, it made him the Las Vegas Valley’s largest landowner. Despite his initial intentions, he ultimately chose not to relocate his company to Nevada, so the purchased land remained undeveloped and empty for decades. In 1988, the corporation announced that it would be developing the empty acres of land into a master-planned commercial and residential community. Consequently, they named the project “Summerlin”, after Hughes’ paternal grandmother, Jean Amelia Summerlin.
