Globus Cork Floor Installed at The Mob Museum (Las Vegas, NV)

Bronx, NY, September 13, 2013 --( Globus Cork flooring has been installed in the historic courtroom at The Mob Museum in Las Vegas, NV. The original courtroom is located within the city’s first federal building – a courthouse and post office - built by the Hoover Administration in 1933.

To match the original 1933 cork floor, Globus Cork was asked to recreate the “look and feel” of the period for this historic restoration. Globus Cork’s 18” x 18” glue-down 100% cork tiles were chosen for their large format recreation of the original floor color, as well as natural beauty, durability, ease of installation and maintenance.

Globus Cork 18” x 18” large format glue-down tiles were selected in Maple & Walnut colors in a traditional texture, along with a 9” x 18” matching border in corresponding colors.

The Mob Museum is preserving not only the history of organized crime and law enforcement in America, it is preserving a part of Las Vegas’ physical history through rehabilitation of the post office and courthouse that was first listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
