Paiutes moved into the area as early as AD , migrating between nearby mountains in the summer and spending winter in the valley, near Big Springs.
A trade caravan of 60 men led by the Spanish merchant Antonio Armijo was charged with establishing a trade route to Los Angeles. The travelers named the area "Las Vegas" which is Spanish for "The Meadows".
John C. He was appointed by President John Tyler to lead a group of scientists , scouts , and spies for the United States Army Corps of Engineers who were preparing for a possible war with Mexico.
Upon arriving in the valley they made camp at the Las Vegas Springs , establishing a clandestine fort there. A war with Mexico did occur, resulting in the region becoming United States territory.
The fort was used in later years by travelers, mountain men , hunters, and traders seeking shelter, but was never permanently inhabited. In , William Bringhurst led a group of 29 Mormon missionaries from Utah to the Las Vegas Valley.
However, because of tensions rising between leaders of the small Mormon community, the summer heat and difficulty growing crops, the missionaries returned to Utah in , abandoning the fort.
For the next few years the area remained unoccupied by Americans except for travelers and traders. Then the U. Army , in an attempt to deceive Confederate spies active in southern California in , falsely publicized that it reclaimed the fort and had renamed it Fort Baker, briefly recalling the area to national attention.
After the end of the war in , Octavius Gass , with a commission from the federal government, re-occupied the fort.
The Paiute nation had declined in numbers and negotiated a new treaty with the United States, ceding the area around the fort to the United States in return for relocation and supplies of food and farming equipment.
Consequently, Gass started irrigating the old fields and renamed the area 'Las Vegas Rancho. In , because of mismanagement and intrigue with a Mormon syndicate, Gass lost his ranch to Archibald Stewart to pay off a lien Stewart had on the property.
Stewart became the Las Vegas Postmaster. The railroad was a project of Montana Senator William Andrews Clark. Clark enlisted Utah's U. Senator and mining magnate Thomas Kearns to ensure the line's completion through Utah to Las Vegas.
Clark and Kearns promoted the area to American farmers who quickly expanded the farming plots of the areas. Not until did the first large-scale migration of Mormons begin in the area, at long last fulfilling Brigham Young's early dream.
Through wells and arid irrigation, agriculture became the primary industry for the next 20 years and in return for his development, the farmers named the area Clark County in honor of the railroad tycoon and Senator.
By the early 20th century, wells piped water into the town, providing both a reliable source of fresh water and the means for additional growth.
The increased availability of water in the area allowed Las Vegas to become a water stop , first for wagon trains and later railroads , on the trail between Los Angeles , California , and points east such as Albuquerque , New Mexico.
Senator William Andrews Clark was the majority owner of the railroad, which was a corporation based in Utah. Among its original incorporators were Utah's U.
Senator Thomas Kearns and his business partner David Keith. Kearns, one of the richest and most powerful men in Utah, and Keith were the owners of Utah's Silver King Coalition Mine, several mines in Nevada and The Salt Lake Tribune newspaper.
Kearns and Keith helped Clark ensure the success of the new railroad across Utah and into Nevada to California. Curiously, for a time there were two towns named Las Vegas.
The east-side of Las Vegas which encompassed the modern Main Street and Las Vegas Boulevard was owned by Clark, and the west-side Las Vegas which encompassed the area north of modern-day Bonanza Road was owned by J.
McWilliams, who was hired by the Stewart family during the sale of the Las Vegas Rancho and bought available land west of the ranch. It was from their property that Las Vegas took form.
Clark subsequently built another railroad branching off from Las Vegas to the boom town of Bullfrog called the Las Vegas and Tonopah Railroad.
With the revenue coming down both railways that intersected there, the area of Las Vegas was quickly growing. Las Vegas was the driving force in the creation of Clark County , Nevada in and the city was incorporated in as a part of the county.
The first mayor of Las Vegas was Peter Buol who served from to Shortly after the city's incorporation, the State of Nevada reluctantly became the last western state to outlaw gaming.
This occurred at midnight, October 1, , when a strict anti-gambling law became effective in Nevada. It even forbade the western custom of flipping a coin for the price of a drink.
Nonetheless, Las Vegas had a diversified economy and a stable and prosperous business community, and therefore continued to grow until In that year, a combination of economic influences and the redirection of resources by the federal government in support of the war effort forced the Las Vegas and Tonopah Railroad to declare bankruptcy.
Although William Clark sold the remains of the company to the Union Pacific Railroad , a nationwide strike in left Las Vegas in a desperate state.
On July 3, , President Herbert Hoover signed the appropriation bill for the Boulder Dam. The dam was later renamed the Hoover Dam during the Truman administration.
Work started on the dam in and Las Vegas' population swelled from around 5, citizens to 25,, with most of the newcomers looking for a job building the dam.
However, the demographic of the work force consisting of males from across the country with no attachment to the area created a market for large-scale entertainment.
A combination of local Las Vegas business owners and Mafia crime lords helped develop the casinos and showgirl theaters to entertain the largely male dam construction workers.
