The History of Henderson
Henderson had a magnesium plant that closed in the 1920s, creating a mass exodus of its residents. Seeing all of the available housing and not wanting the town to die, Henderson went on the shortlist to be the home to Hoover Dam. After being granted the contract, Hoover Dam started construction on the dam. Boulder City was created to build housing for the dam’s workers, but Boulder City had its drawbacks.
The problem with the housing in Boulder City was that Boulder City didn’t have any schools or medical facilities. It made sense for dam workers with families to live in Henderson which had schools and a hospital. After the completion of Hoover Dam, World War II was gearing up. A munitions plant opened at Black Mountain utilizing the nearby magnesium and capitalizing on unemployed dam workers. Many of the laid-off dam workers moved to jobs at the munitions plant and never left town.
Henderson’s residents voted to make Henderson an incorporated city in 1953. Incorporation meant that Henderson created its own Police and Fire Departments and a City of Henderson court system. With miles of desert land between Las Vegas and Henderson, Henderson became the industrial area for Las Vegas. In the late 1970s, the owner of the Las Vegas Sun Newspaper, Alan Greenspun, started the American Nevada Company and Green Valley broke ground.
Green Valley Was The First Master Planned Community In Nevada
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, the Las Vegas Strip exploded. With 2-4 mega-resorts opening each year on and off the Strip, Henderson was a logical place for construction crews and hotel employees and their families to live. City Planners anticipated Henderson’s growth since 5000 people a month relocated to the Las Vegas Valley and were prepared.
Green Valley was the first Master-Planned Community in the Las Vegas Valley. Soon, Henderson implemented their flood control plan, built major roads, and created zoning that made sense. A Master Plan was implemented accounting for future growth. Plans were made for business and light industrial areas, schools- both public and private, and parks and recreation facilities. Medical areas and Senior Centers were also slated.
Today over 25 Master Planned Communities and 7 Age 55+ Active Adult Communities call Henderson home. Growth continues at a rate of 5000 people a month moving into the valley, and Henderson has been a very desirable place to call home. Henderson West and Lake Las Vegas are the final areas of Henderson to be completed, Henderson will soon be “Built Out.”
