Acquaint yourself with Las Vegas’s history by reading our brief historical summary provided below. The area was originally occupied by Paiute Indians who congregated around patches of fertile land that thrived on the waters that flowed in subterranean aquifers and artesian wells. These patches of fertile land, the meadows, were called vegas in Spanish and were so referred to when the Mexican Scouts first surveyed the area under Rafael Rivera. They eventually called the area Las Vegas. In 1855, Brigham Young sent 30 missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Las Vegas to evangelize the Paiute Indians. The missionaries set up a fort in the area to facilitate travelers traversing the area in what was slowly becoming Mormon country. The Mormon Corridor eventually stretched from Salt Lake City to San Bernardino, California and Las Vegas provided a brief stop to the travelers within the corridor. As pioneers increased in the area on their way westward, Las Vegas became an important stopover for supplies and lodging. The area increased in importance with the arrival of the railroad and a stop being built in Las Vegas.
