On New Year's Day in 1952, Howard Robard Hughes Jr. purchased 25,000 acres on the western rim of Las Vegas for an incredible $3 per acre. Hughes originally purchased this land to relocate his California business, deciding later not to relocate. As a result, this land sat for 30 years until 1988 when the grandmother of Howard Hughes, Jean Summerlin began planning this master community located on the western rim of Las Vegas.
Today Summerlin offers incredible views of the Las Vegas strip and a "diverse collection of housing options." This community is home to over 150 parks, 24 public and private schools, 14 churches, 3 hotels, over 24 golf courses, a medical center and so much more. All of these amenities has made Summerlin an example for what living in community is all about.
