Beyond the sparkling lights of the Las Vegas strip lies a state filled with spectacular natural beauty, hidden one-of-a-kind hangouts, and a deep, rich Wild Western history. Since the earliest days of our state’s history, people have worked together to make Nevada great, welcoming citizens of all cultures and beliefs and advocating for the causes that bring us together. The Richard Harris Law Firm stands by its commitment to enrich the communities we serve, and we are proud to present Spirit of Nevada—featuring exceptional places, charities, and other organizations— making Nevada a better place.

Meet Our Host
“I’m Samantha, you can call me Sam!”
As the host of Spirit of Nevada, I’ve had the opportunity to tell the stories of those who explored our land, honor local heroes and organizations that better the community, and showcase some of the most spectacular locations hidden throughout our great state. My hope is you will create new memories at these special places and discover both sides of Nevada. Whether you just moved here, or are a Nevada native, you will enjoy this diverse series.
Just north of downtown Las Vegas lies the Old Mormon Fort, the first permanent, non-native structure built by missionaries in the Las Vegas Valley in 1855. Two years later, the mission was abandoned due to harsh weather conditions and challenges with the natives. Today, a portion of the original adobe stockade wall, underground foundations of ranch buildings, and historical artifacts remain in stark contrast with vast and modern Las Vegas.
