Workers remove the neon sign dubbed “Vegas Vickie” in downtown Las Vegas on June 13.

LAS VEGAS >> The famous neon sign of a cowgirl in downtown Las Vegas has been taken down as part of the construction of a planned casino-resort.

After more than two decades on Freemont Street, “Vegas Vickie” was dismantled June 13.

Casino owner Derek Stevens says his company is looking for a home for the neon sign. It was created in 1980 and originally dubbed “Sassy Sally” after a casino of that name.

Stevens’ company is planning to transform the space previously occupied by the Las Vegas Club.
