View of Las Vegas, San Miguel County, N.M., 1882 / drawn & published by J. J. Stoner.

This bird’s-eye view print of Las Vegas, New Mexico was drawn by J. J. Stoner and published by Beck & Pauli, Lithographers in 1882. Las Vegas was established in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in 1835. It prospered in its early years as a trading center along the Santa Fe Trail. Las Vegas was a haven for desperados during that era.

This map shows the community just after the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad began services just across the Gallinas River. This nearby depot site prompted the development of West Las Vegas. West Las Vegas, in the foreground of this image, eventually merged with the older settlement.

Hot Springs, located five miles from town, was an easy jaunt by rail in 1882, enabling several luxury hotels at Las Vegas to succeed.

The map indicates Las Vegas’ altitude to be 6,400 ft. above sea level. Included are labeled streets, buildings and railroad route. Featured is an inset illustration of Hot Springs. Alt. 6,767 ft.
