Closed: Wayne Newton’s Casa de Shenandoah

Wayne Newton’s Casa de Shenandoah closed to the public in 2018.
It had opened to the public in September 2015. Casa de Shenandoah is a 52 acre property that has been the home of Wayne Newton since 1966. Until it opened, the general public was only able to get an aerial view of what’s been behind the grandiose gates of Casa de Shenandoa. Locals could spot Newton’s property while heading in or out of McCarran Airport:

In 2013 a For Sale signed appeared next to the Casa de Shenandoah sign at the corner of Eastern and S Pecos Rd. It signaled the possible end of an era, what would become of his home? His horses? His ranch?

According to his website, Wayne Newton moved to Las Vegas in 1959 at the age of 15. Seven years later he bought his first 5 acres of land on the Eastern side of Las Vegas. This land became Casa de Shenandoah:

With artisan lakes and wells, eight homes, two barns, 60 stalls, 3 arenas, 60 pure-bread Arabian horses and numerous exotic animals, this property once considered to be “in the country of the Nevada desert” is now in the heart of Las Vegas and considered a Las Vegas Landmark that has welcomed Presidents, Kings and countless celebrities through it’s magnificent golden gates.

When Casa de Shenandoah opened The Las Vegas Review-Journal noted:

Guests will start at a visitors center across the street from the estate. There, they can purchase tickets for the tour — packages range from $35 to $95 for adults — view a film about Newton, and take home a Newton or Casa de Shenandoah souvenir, home decor, apparel and gift items from Kat’s Corner, named for Newton’s wife, Kathleen, or children’s items and pet accessories from Lauren’s Lair, named for Newton’s daughter, with proceeds going to Opportunity Village.

Along with a serious look at Wayne Newton’s life and history in Las Vegas, visitors could see memorabilia Mr. Newton received throughout his long career as a performer including a gold microphone given as a gift by Frank Sinatra and a letter written to Newton by Elvis Presley.
