A Short History of Las Vegas
Las Vegas Valley has been home to Native Americans for thousands
of years. It was discovered by Spanish explorers in 1829 who
were attracted to the area because of the natural springs and
meadows that existed here. They called the valley Las Vegas,
which is Spanish for "The Meadows."
The first modern-era settlement was established by Mormon
missionaries in 1855, but the project was abandoned in 1858.
This original mission, known today as the Old Las Vegas
Mormon Fort, became a haven for desert-worn travelers and
trailblazers lured by the region's gold and silver.
Settlers finally moved into the area to stay in 1865. That year
Octavius D. Gass, set up a ranch on what is now downtown Las
Vegas. Gass lost the ranch to Archibald Stewart, whose wife,
Helen, later sold the ranch to Montana U.S. Senator William
Many people credit Clark as the one who gave Las Vegas its start
when he used the land to finish the railroad line between Los
Angeles and Salt Lake City. With the arrival of Union Pacific
Railroad in 1905 and the auction of land parcels owned by the
railroad, Las Vegas was off and running as a typical
Las Vegas officially became a city in 1911 by an act of
the Nevada legislature. The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce was
founded that same year.
Las Vegas was fairly insulated from the Great Depression. Jobs
and money were plentiful because of railroad development, legal
gambling and the construction of Hoover Dam. Ironically, the dam
also generated the start of the tourism industry as thousands of
visitors came to watch the dam being built.
When the Nevada Legislature legalized casino gambling as a means
of raising tax revenue in 1931, Nevada's #1 industry began. El
Rancho Vegas became the first resort to open on what was to
become the world-famous Las Vegas Strip.
During World War II, Nellis Air Force Base was growing into a
key military installation. Originally built to train B-20
gunners, it later became the training ground for the nation's
ace fighter pilots. Basic Refractors also established a
magnesium plant south of Las Vegas to help with the war effort.
As the community grew, it became the City of Henderson.
Today's modern gaming industry began to take shape after World
War II. The most celebrated of the early resorts was the
Flamingo Hotel, built by Benjamin "Bugsy" Seigel,
which opened on New Year's Eve in 1946. In 1955, the Riviera
became the first high-rise on the Strip with nine stories.
The push to build bigger, more luxurious properties continued.
Before long the hotel/casino resorts on Las Vegas Strip were
rivaling the downtown area. Growth continued at a steady pace
through the 1970s with a brief lull in the 1980s when the
community felt the effects of nationwide recession. As soon as
the economy bounced back, people flocked to Las Vegas
in record numbers, first as tourists and later as permanent
During the late 1980s, there weren't enough construction workers
and equipment to meet the demand. Las Vegas soon became the
darling of the nation's economists who were amazed at the growth
in construction and residences. The opening of the Mirage Resort
in 1989 kicked off a growth spurt of resort properties on the
Strip, which didn't skip a beat in the first half of the 1990s.
By 1996, seven new themed megaresorts had opened.
At the close the millennium, four more resort properties were
added to serve the more than 30 million tourists who visit Las
Vegas annually. Long touted as the "Gaming Capital of the
World" and the "Entertainment Capital," Las Vegas
is also a thriving business mecca. Even with the spread of
gaming throughout the country, Las Vegas is still booming and
its future looks bright.
