"In 1929, A.L. Worswick, an architect from San Francisco, came to town. For the next twenty years, his firm designed many of Las Vegas' most important public and private buildings, including the adobe Las Vegas Hospital, the Apache Hotel (now the Horseshoe)several public schools and the imposing S.R. Whitehead house. Worswick preferred the Mission style for its simplicity and grace, as well as its suitability for the desert climate." from http://www.pacc.info/historical-guide.asp (last accessed 5/10/2007)
