History of Las Vegas

The first settler of what later became known as Las Vegas came to the area in 1829 as stop on part of the Spanish Trail leading a group to Los Angeles. Las Vegas translates literally from Spanish to “the meadows”, which the settlers chose due to the vast amount of wild grass that covered the land. Later settlers began trickling into the area based on the writings published by John C. Fremont. Although for many years there were settlers passing through the Old Mormon Fort, Las Vegas was not officially founded until 1905 when the railroad arrived to connect the area with the West Coast. Casinos began popping up in the 1930s, accompanying the construction of Hoover Dam. It was the constant building of the casinos and the construction of the Hoover Dam that had allowed the city to remain prosperous while the rest of the world was in economic turmoil brought on by the Great Depression. By the 1940s, Las Vegas took shape as a swanky vacation location, and celebrities like Dean Martin and Elvis Presley became frequent guests. The mega-casinos began popping up in the 1980s, and casinos and entertainment have been the city's biggest draws ever since.
