built in 1979 by jerry henderson, a businessman and philanthropist who was a director for avon products, this underground house in las vegas reflects the era in which it was created. henderson, who was a pioneer in underground living, made sure the residence had every amenity needed: five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a dance floor, barbecue and a pool. when he died in 1983, his wife built the townhouse on the surface as she was not very keen on the underground life. after one or two different owners, the society for the preservation of near extinct species took over the property with his president, mark voelker, living in the above ground house.
