Beautiful examples of grand Victorian architecture and one-story adobe buildings stand side by side centered around tree-shaded grassy Plaza with a gazebo. The District includes the Veeder Buldings, The Plaza Hotel, the Charles Ilfeld Building, the Louis Ilfeld Building the Romero Building and Our Lady of Sorrows. The Plaza District also includes the Presbyterian Mission and Acequias Madres. A self-guided walking tour is available.

Las Vegas Plaza is a Certified Site of the Santa Fe National Historic Trail. The Plaza, heart of West Las Vegas, is the original settlement of the town. It is a fine example of Spanish Colonial tradition of town planning.
