"Built as a Fred Harvey hotel, long attraction, we're going to find out everything that I've been telling you is probably wrong. We'll find out from the from the authority here in a second everything about every building in San in Las Vegas gives me but real quickly again. It's a gorgeous day in Las Vegas at sixty nine degrees right now. And absolutely gorgeous going to be really nice tomorrow about seventy five tomorrow and Sunday Easter Sunday is going to be a beautiful day in Las Vegas and Santa Fe and or the New Mexico. But please once again look out for the pilgrims walking along the streets in the highways, and the roads they are walking where you don't normally see people, and so please pay attention to the roads and look out for the pilgrims. They're they're even walking along I twenty five in. I don't know. To me. It seems a little dangerous, but they are protected by a power much higher than than myself. All right. What do you wanna talk about Kathy Hendrickson? She runs southwest tour detours and frequent guests and we've known each other while you are you are the expert on everything Las Vegas and a lot of ways, you know, you also done done a partnership with Lafond and Santa Fe, and that's right. You are really a cheerleader and a promoter for northern New Mexico. Thank you very much, Richard. I do feel that way. I love it here. What's not to love? Beautiful weather. It's beautiful scenery. You're right. What's love, and I moved here from Kuwait. So. I mean that was a desert town, this is high desert. So we get some. Recently. Go back. Yeah. I did. I was back there a month ago. I went back from because when I lived over there. And actually we lived over there for eight years my daughter came over to visit and then she wanted to live there, and then a friend of hers from England came over to visit and then they got married and now I got a granddaughter over there. So that's my go back. Every year reminds me, you know, yesterday, I was doing the show the United world college. And you are a your your family for some of these students during breaks. Yeah. So they will call getaway family, correct? Yes. You and your husband are. Yes. And right. And in fact, Sunday Easter were hosting five students from up there for Easter. Yeah, they come over to the house. And sometimes they spend the night I've had kids that are coming from conflicted areas, for instance, Syria for one, you know, just to mention one country. They can't go home on their breaks. They can't go home on the summer. They can't go home at Christmas whenever the students have breaks. So they will stay with us in our home. One group yesterday ahead of young lady on who was who is Indian. But they live in Oman. She has no place in here entire life except living in Oman. And and they will move soon to Barin or Kuwait or somewhere, but we had a nice discussion about the kind of the changing definition of citizenship anymore, especially in that part of the world. Actually, a mind is a beautiful country. I've traveled there and I've been India, but Aumont is storage. So that's not a tough place to live actor or they are very much discriminated against. And so part of this conflict resolution program up at up at United world college probably going to come in hand. And she said, yes, sir, will mazing amazing students. They are they're all handpicked. They're all special kids, and I can tell you because I've hosted many of them, they're all wonderful students and wonderful people in they come back, and they sometimes it goes back to their own countries. Other times they stay here. But you know, to quote, the the person that is actually the donor up at the world college. He said people ask him. That's Shelby Davis, by the way. He they ask him. Why do you continue to support the world college? He's given millions and millions of millions of dollars. He said, I believe in future leaders of our world. And that's what these students are. So great place. Imagine. I would imagine that you and your husband kind of get more out of the relationship than what you're giving. I definitely yes. Yeah. All right. What does this? What does this tell here media? Oh, gosh. Well, we moved here about seven years ago. And I didn't I didn't even know all that Fred Harvey history. But I was so curious about this beautiful buildings sitting here empty nothing happening. I I would walk down here railroad all the time. We actually bought an old 1899 Victorian town, and we were in the middle of restoring that. So I went over to the historic preservation in town started doing research on out only on our home. Our home is a former Moluccas fund a lot of information about that. And then family started. Yes. They did. Yes, they did. And then Joseph Plouffe went on to start the Coors, beer distributorship. And yes history. Yeah. So I started researching this building and found out it was a Fred Harvey hotel built in eighteen ninety eight first grade trackside hotel for Fred Harvey. And I just started getting into all that history. And here I am doing tours here. So it's it's interesting history. Las Vegas is steeped with history. And it's such an interesting town with all these beautiful start buildings and one side of town has got one style of architecture. The other side of town has got a different style of architecture. So it's it's fascinating. And that's what I fell in love about. You know, we we pulled into Las Vegas. We've been looking at lot of towns in New Mexico to retire. And I just said when we pulled into Las Vegas. I said this is it I just love all these old buildings, and it's it's got a independent bookstore. Not every town does exactly. Fortunately, we have several in Santa Fe. All right. So you mentioned the magic word which is retire and talking earlier about the study just came out poll just came out from United van lines. New Mexico is now the number one destination for retirees and I look at a town like Las Vegas because homes need renovation. Some are fixer uppers. They're still still forcible. And this can be kind of a great gateway to many, many things are cultured the outdoors skiing fishing. I mean, everything I mean, people can could retire here move here. Do you see that as as as also as cheerleader promoter of this part into Mexico is an opportunity for you? Oh, yeah. I mean, all the tours that I that are coming into Las Vegas, and and most of them, I would say a a huge majority of them are retirement age. I'd say fifty five and over last Saturday, you had an entire model t. Club from Albuquerque. Yes, right. Scored. Yeah. There's a tire row of new looked like old gangster cars. I know it. They were coupes. Yeah. They were so awesome. Yeah. And then the in two days before that I had forty people come from Colorado. And what they did was they took the train to Kansas from Colorado did a whole Fred Harvey tour in Kansas because that's eleven worth is actually print Harvey's hometown. Did not know that. Yes. And so they toured Fred Harvey's home and some of the old Fred Harvey buildings that were there, and then they got back on the train came to Las Vegas and then the bus followed him. And so then the bus would pick them up at the train station. I gave him a tour here. And then we toured all around town on the bus. And then they got back on the train the.

Some of them may have been likes them a find a lunchroom a restaurant and hotel and impasse built by an immigrant from England who saw a need for good food along the nation's expanding railroad lines. I think he understood America better than a lot of Americans that at that time Stephen free book tells Fred Harvey story he was a traveling salesman for the railroads from. He knew how terrible the food was especially west of Chicago. I think he just felt that if he could do it. Well, that would change things he took his idea to the atchison Topeka and Santa Fe railroad, then the smallest of the competing lines. Fred Harvey said, well, if I have better food, maybe my railroad will win. And in fact, that's what happened Fred Harvey restaurant sprang up as fast as the railroad could build them with good fresh food. Food prepared by world class. Chefs good, China and white linen table cloths. You'd have London quality food New York quality food in the middle of New Mexico..
