      Named for William 'Bill' Smith, who opened a gas station here on the Utah/Nevada border in 1926 and went on to found the State Line Hotel and Casino, Wendover Will has been greetings visitors to Wendover since 1952 - and was restored and moved to his current site in 2005. So synonymous with the city has this iconic, neon illuminated sign become that Wendover Will now features on the city seal.

      If you go:
      Take another look. Does he remind you of Vegas Vic, the neon cowboy who stands on Fremont Street? He should - Vic is Will's elder but smaller brother, also built by Young Electric Sign Company and erected a year earlier, in 1951.
