Basic History

Trappers and traders entered the Nevada area in the 1820s. The U.S. obtained the region in 1848 following the Mexican War. Congress made Nevada into a territory in 1861 as migrant prospectors and settlers poured in. It was rushed into statehood in 1864. The federal government played a major role in Nevada’s development. It is one of the fastest-growing U.S. states and is home to new, technological industries.
