Reservations by November 6, 2007 are required by calling the Junior League office at (702) 822-6536. The Morelli House is located at 861 Bridger Avenue in downtown Las Vegas.



Morelli fireplaceJunior League Morelli House Docents will be conducting tours that will explain its architectural features, the life and times of Antonio Morelli and the interesting story of the historical preservation project. The fall vintage clothing exhibit will feature seasonal colors and textures. Junior League members will be modeling mid century outfits and Sak’s Fifth Avenue has generously loaned mannequins for the exhibit. There will be men’s fashions, but the majority will be women’s from the late 1950’s when the Morelli house was built.



About The Morelli House & Public Events

The Morelli House was built in l959 by Antonio Morelli, longtime orchestra leader at the Sands Hotel, and was originally located on the Desert Inn Golf Course Estates, now the Wynn Resort. In 2001, the League saved the house from demolition, restored it and relocated it to the corner of 9th and Bridger Streets on the outskirts of the historical district in downtown Las Vegas. The Morelli House is listed on the state of Nevada’s and the City of Las Vegas’ Historical Registries.

This promises to be a great event!

Lets all get out and show our support for the Junior League and our fellow Mid-Mod preservationists!

Oh, and, btw, that is my birthday. Although I will not be accepting gifts, hugs and warm wishes for turning the 30 threshold will be appreciatively accepted. ;)
