Last Chance Joe is a massive sculpture that stood high at the entrance of The Nugget Hotel and Casino for 56 years. (The 36-foot high miner was created by Juke Reading of Boise in 1952)

After the Casino was bought out it went into a remodeling face. The statue was going to go to the trash but, with the donation from an anonymous donor that calls him self “Max America” the statue was saved and moved down the street to The Sparks Heritage Museum and Cultural Center along Victorian Avenue.

Now more visible than ever, it puts a smile on pedestrians and drivers day in and day out my self included :)
