Wendover Will

One of the original electric cowboys.
Wendover Will, at 64 feet tall, is the worlds tallest cowboy.
Originally erected in 1952 at Wendover's State Line Hotel & Casino.
Will stood and directed travelers to the The State Line until 2002 when the casino was sold and the name was changed to The Nugget. Will was then taken down and put into storage.
In 2006 he was deeded to the city and erected, fully restored, at the west end of town, to once again welcome visitors to West Wendover, Nevada.
