According to Oscar B. Goodman, mayor of Las Vegas, the city celebrated its 100th birthday on May 15, 2005, reflecting the passage of a century since the day "our first residents purchased 100 acres in a land auction near what is now the heart of downtown Las Vegas." For about the first 45 of those 100 years, the town was, as Goodman admits, a "sleepy railroad stopover," but the 55 years since have seen it "transformed…into the entertainment capital of the world."
