Blue Diamond

The village of Blue Diamond is located on the south end of Red Rock Canyon area.
Sign at the Blue Diamond entrance This is a small community that was established as a company town in the 1940's. The company, which mines Gypsum, is still active today and remains the villages principal employer. However, the growth in the Southern Nevada area is what will fuel the future of this village.

It is a quite and nice little place to visit. Las Vegas which seems to be getting closer all the time still has left this place relatively intact and like it was in the past.
It is shaded on almost every street. The trees are old and they give the place a nice atmosphere.

It really does not seem like the desert, but it does seem like Red Rock Canyon.

The narrow, winding streets are reminiscent of a past when it wasn't necessary to have broad, straight roads everywhere.

It gives the place a lot of appeal that hopefully will go unnoticed by the crowds that are attracted to the Scenic Loop area on the north end of Red Rock Canyon.

Blue Diamond has so far lucky to have escaped the type of development that has made Las Vegas over-crowded.

With any luck, Blue Diamond not suffer from the over abundance of visitors that find their way to other parts of Red Rock Canyon.
