Nevada Business Information

Nevada's name comes from the Spanish word meaning "snow clad"--a reference to the snow-covered peaks of the Sierra Nevada. The discovery of the Comstock Lode, a massive deposit of silver, in 1859 brought many fortune seekers. Statehood followed shortly afterwards in 1864, when Nevada was admitted as the 36st state. Nevada is in a mountain region that includes semiarid grasslands and sandy deserts, and is the most arid state in the nation. Nevada's two main cities, Las Vegas in the South and Reno in the North, attract fortune seekers from around the world hoping to strike it rich in the many casinos located there. The largest city is Las Vegas and the capital is Carson City (near Reno), and the state flower is the sagebrush. Nevada is also known as the Silver State.

From census 2000 and 2010: The Nevada state population was 1,998,257 in 2000 and 2,723,322 in 2010, with over half of the people living in and around Las Vegas. Nevada covers 109,826 square miles, and had a density of 24.6 persons per square mile. 26.5% of the population was of Hispanic or Latino origin, and 8.1% of the population was of Black or African American origin, and 7.2% were of Asian origin. Nevada grew 66.3% between 1990 and 2000, and 35.1% between 2000 and 2010.

Brief Nevada History

From the Utah Territory, the Nevada Territory (Nevada is Spanish for snow-capped or snowfall) was created by an Act of Congress. It was signed by President James Buchanan and became effective March 2, 1861. President Abraham Lincoln appointed James W. Nye of New York as Nevada's first Territorial Governor. Nevada became the 36th State on October 31, 1864, when President Lincoln proclaimed Nevada's admission to the Union. During the next 75 or so years, many mining towns flourished over the state.

Since the early 1930's, tourism, particularly entertainment, legalized gaming (since 1931), and mining are important to Nevada's economy.

Nevada is the seventh largest State with 109,895 Square Miles. The highest point, less than a mile from the California border in Esmeralda County, in the Inyo National Forest is Boundary Peak at 13,143 feet. Mount Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous 48 states is 14,495 feet. Wheeler Peak in Great Basin National Park (not to be confused with Wheeler Peak in New Mexico) is the second highest peak in Nevada at 13,063 feet. It is in the Great Basin National Park, near the Utah border. Its east face forms a rock cirque (pronounced surk, that is a steep-walled semicircular basin) which holds a small glacier. Nevada's Wheeler Peak dominates the surrounding terrain, unlike Boundary Peak which has many mountains around it. The Lowest Point is the Colorado River at 470 feet.

According to the 2000 census, the largest cities in order of size in Nevada are Las Vegas, Reno followed closely by Henderson, North Las Vegas, Sparks, Carson City and Elko.
