The Las Vegas High School neighborhood Historic District is a well preserved and cohesive group of buildings and structures associated with the growth and development of Las Vegas as the governmental and commercial center for Clark County and southern Nevada.  The district includes the bulk of the homes built between the late 1920s, coinciding with the announcement of the construction of the Hoover Dam, and continuing until WWII, when wartime housing developments began construction nearby.  Today, the neighborhood has seen much of the original housing demolished or converted for professional office.

The Las Vegas High School Neighborhood Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
