NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - North Las Vegas officials are marking the start of more than $2 million worth of construction on a new park at one of the first settled spots in the Las Vegas area.

A Wednesday morning ceremony will be at Kiel Ranch Historic Park - a seven-acre site surrounding an ancient spring north of Carey Avenue between Losee (LOH’-see) Road and Commerce Street.

Funding is coming from Southern Nevada Public Lands Management Act and Land and Water Conservation Fund grants.

The park name is pronounced ”Kyle.’ It’s on the list of the National Register of Historic Places.

The site is part of an original 240-acre homestead that historians say was settled in the mid-1800s by Conrad Kiel.

Artifacts unearthed there suggest it was a gathering spot long before Mormon missionaries arrived.
