Museum Piece

The El Cortez paid tribute to longtime owner Jackie Gaughan this week by opening a new exhibit, "Jackie Gaughan's Downtown As Seen Through Gaming Memorabilia." Featuring artifacts from the nine casinos Gaughan owned or had a stake in, it's the first mobile display of the Museum of Gaming History, a project of the Casino Chip & Gaming Token Collector's Club. The much-beloved Gaughan at one point owned a chunk of Downtown's gaming action, although the El Cortez was always his crown jewel.
