The Las Vegas Hilton: Looking Back at its History

AIR DATE: January 12, 2012

The Las Vegas Hilton recently changed its name to the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino.  But it can't shake its storied history, from its days of Elvis Presley, to an arson fire, to the long-running "Star Trek Experience" that brought sci-fi fans from around the world.  Historian Michael Green takes us back in time, to revisit the Las Vegas Hilton that was.
