History

Prior to the construction of the Silver Legacy, the lot on which the casino stands was home to a supermarket and service station. In the years prior to the construction of Interstates 80 and 580, the intersection of 4th and Virginia, pictured to the left, was the busiest intersection in the state of Nevada; at the time, Virginia Street was (and still is, according to mile-markers) US 395, and 4th Street was US 40.

The property opened on July 28, 1995. The project, which was first announced in 1992, as a joint venture between Circus Circus Hotel & Casino and the Eldorado Casino Hotel. MGM Mirage is the majority partner, with 51%, to Eldorado's 49% holding. First known as "Project C", the $350 million casino was named in a local competition and had changed themes several times. The main hotel tower has 42 floors, with floors 4 through 38 being hotel rooms. At 410 feet, the Silver Legacy is the tallest building in Reno, though the Grand Sierra Resort hotel tower, which stands at 353 ft making it the second-tallest structure in the city, still has more rooms.cite web|url=http://www.emporis.com/en/wm/bu/?id=126804|title=Silver Legacy Resort & Casino, Reno|accessdate=October 21|accessyear=2007]
