The Harry Mohney Erotic Museum, also known as the Erotic Heritage Museum, (EHM) was originally created between a partnership of a Preacher and a Pornographer. Rev. Ted McIlvenna and Harry Mohney agreed to work together to create the Las Vegas Erotic Heritage Museum and maintain a mission of preservation for erotic artifacts, fine art, and film. The EHM houses more than 24,000 square feet of permanent and featured exhibits designed to preserve wonders of the erotic imagination as depicted through the artistic expression of acts of sex and love. It is dedicated to the belief that sexual pleasure and fun are natural aspects of the human experience, that such pleasure must be made available to all, and that our individual sexuality belongs to each of us. The Museum is dedicated to the preservation of great erotic heritage that is typically undervalued, yet is of tremendous importance. Our sole purpose is to perform educational, scientific, and literary functions relating to sexual, emotional, mental, and physical health. We have a calendar full of educational workshops and lectures throughout the year. The Museum is also available for special events, and is home to the world's only Eros Chapel Theatre. Should you live in Las Vegas or intend to visit, the Erotic Heritage Museum will surely provide a unique experience. If you are interested in renting the space for a special event or have any questions, please contact us at (702) 794-4000.

The Las Vegas community came together to build a new community healing garden in response to the Oct. 1 tragedy, when a lone gunman massacred 58* individuals and injured 489* more who were attending a music festival. Stonerose Landscapes principals Jay Pleggenkuhle and Daniel Perez designed a memorial garden that was constructed on City of Las Vegas property at 1015 S. Casino Center Blvd. The garden features a wall of remembrance, a grove of trees, shrubs, flowers, walkways of pavers and benches – all to create something beautiful out of something horrific. This garden park was completed in four days and officially opened Oct. 6. Numerous local companies, organizations and individuals contributed to the construction effort. In November 2017, Outside Las Vegas Foundation was brought on as the non-profit partner of the LV Healing Garden to assist in the upkeeping, planning, and day to day activities of the garden. Together with Stonerose Landscapes and other local companies, OLVF formed the LV Healing Garden Committee to ensure the garden's sustainability for years to come.
