Nevada lies east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains (after which it is named). It is a state of surprising contrasts. The country is mostly arid and very sparsely populated, and yet Nevada is one of the most prosperous states, for reasons that are often controversial. See Nevada abbreviation.
The American Indians have lived here for more than 20,000 years. The first European settlers were Spanish missionaries and Canadian fur hunters in the 18th and early 19th centuries. They were followed by the traveler John Charles Frémont (1813–1856), who opened the west to settlers and prospectors. In 1848, Mexico ceded the area to the United States. The findings at Comstock Lode caused a silver fever in 1859 and marked the first wave of immigrants. Monetary reform in the 1970s caused a sharp decline in silver mining. The cattle breeding that replaced it also soon declined, leaving many abandoned settlements. Mining and farming were revived in the early 20th century to decimate during the economic crisis of 1929-33.
In the early 1930s, Nevada passed laws that legalized gambling, prostitution, and minimized legal requirements for weddings and divorces. This has led to an influx of investment from other areas of the United States. Around Las Vegas in the south and Rena in the west, a number of resorts have sprung up in scenic areas, offering luxury hotels, a vibrant nightlife and casinos. The ensuing tourism boom brought immediate prosperity. Meanwhile, traditional industries have been supported by cheap electricity from the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River and the discovery of other mineral deposits. The majority of the population is concentrated around Las Vegas and Reno, so the deserted hinterland has been used to build military facilities, including those where underground nuclear weapons tests are being conducted. Currently, Nevada is the most attractive migration state in the USA.
