When Michael Jackson returned to the United States 2006, after living abroad for almost three years, he never went back to his famous Neverland Ranch in California.
His final residence in Las Vegas was Hacienda Palomino, a 1.7 acre compound hidden in the center of the City. Michael Jackson leased the property from the Honorary Consul who owns it still. Jackson was the last resident of the property.
Built decades ago by an eccentric theater developer, the compound remains owned and managed by members of the diplomatic community and the foundations they support. Renovations previously planned have been completed and this final bastion of the King of Pop remains a private residence. A cultural icon of Las Vegas, the property occasionally hosts private events for Las Vegas and international society.“I’m going to search for my star until I find it. It’s hidden in the drawer of innocence, wrapped in a scarf of wonder.” – Michael Jackson, Dancing the Dream
