THE HISTORY OF Las Vegas
(“The Meadows” in Spanish) was founded as a city on May 15, 1905. The Nevada Legislature created Clark County on July 1, 1909. The new county was named after William Clark, who brought the railroad to southern Nevada. Las Vegas became the county seat. At that time, Las Vegas was only 19.18 square miles and had a population of approximately 800, less than one percent of the state’s total population. On March 19, 1911, gambling is legalized in the State of Nevada. One month later the city issues six gambling licenses. Beginning in 1931, the construction of Hoover Dam brings an influx of construction workers which starts a population boom and gives the Valley’s economy, which was in the grips of the Great Depression, a needed boost. The outbreak of World War II brings the defense industry to the valley. The isolated location, along with plentiful water and inexpensive energy, makes Las Vegas an ideal site for military and defense-related industries. The site for Nellis Air Force Base is located in the northeast, and the Basic Management Complex, providers of raw materials, is located in the southeastern suburb of Henderson. The defense industry continues to employ a significant number of valley residents. In 1945, following World War II, lavishly decorated resort hotels and gambling casinos offering top-name entertainment come into existence. Tourism and entertainment take over as the largest employer in the valley. In 1969, Elvis Presley opens at the International Hotel, now known as the Las Vegas Hilton. Starting in the mid-1980s, a period of unprecedented growth begins. Annual population increases averaging nearly seven percent causes the city’s population to almost double between 1985 and 1995, increasing from 186, 380 to 368,360. Clark County’s population increases from 562,280 to 1,036,180. The US Census reports the population of Las Vegas is 478,434 over a land area of 113 square miles. There are over 500 churches and synagogues, 799 acres of parks, 7 television stations and 12 radio stations (4 AM and 8 FM). Las Vegas is the largest metropolitan city in the U.S. that was founded in the 20th century. The city of Las Vegas celebrated its 100th birthday on May 15, 2005. The events celebrated the 1905 auction in which 110 acres of downtown Las Vegas laid the foundation for the city we know today. The celebration began on December 31, 2004, and lasted throughout 2005.
