About 300 Stewart Ave


Governing non-profit board comprised of key professionals & influencers in Las Vegas

(LAS VEGAS) — The Mob Museum, the National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, is governed by a 501(c)3 non-profit board, the 300 Stewart Avenue Corporation. Comprised of highly respected professionals from local and state government, law enforcement, the judicial system, legal profession, media and business community, the first chair of the board was Ellen Knowlton, former FBI Special Agent in Charge, Las Vegas Division, and a 24-year FBI veteran. The current chair of the board is Jeffrey A. Silver, Esq., community leader and one of Nevada’s pre-eminent gaming law practitioners. They and many other board members have first-hand knowledge of organized crime and its impact on Las Vegas. Incorporated in 2007, the 300 Stewart Avenue Corporation gets its name from The Mob Museum’s historic address located at 300 Stewart Avenue in downtown Las Vegas. Board members have been actively engaged in the planning and development of The Museum since its inception. The Museum is located in what many consider the ultimate artifact, the former federal courthouse and United States Post Office. Completed in 1933 and listed on the Nevada and National Registers of Historic Places, it housed the very courtroom where, in 1950, one of the 27 national Kefauver hearings in 14 cities was held to expose and control organized crime in America. Meticulously rehabilitated for The Mob Museum, the building is significant not only for its neo-classical architecture reminiscent of the period in which it was built, but also for the historic events that unfolded inside of it. The Mob Museum is a $42 million construction project funded by the city of Las Vegas and nearly $9 million in historic preservation grants – including federal, state and local. A key visionary for the project and current 300 Stewart Avenue Corporation board member is former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar B. Goodman, a previous go-to defense attorney who made a name for himself representing such reputed mobsters as Meyer Lansky, Frank “Lefty” Rosenthal, and Anthony Spilotro among others.
