History

The first Henderson NV homes were built during World War II to provide housing for Basic Magnesium Plant employees. The demand for magnesium decreased after the war, and company employees left Henderson. Many Henderson homes were left vacant. The city was offered for sale as war surplus property in 1947. Nevada legislators visited Henderson to see if the state could take over the magnesium plant. They approved a bill giving the state's Colorado River Commission permission to buy the plant. Henderson was incorporated in 1953. It is now Nevada's second largest city. Henderson home buyers can learn more about the city's history at visithenderson.com/visit/glance/history.
