Chapter 3

Since Nevada is so far west, it wasn’t settled by Europeans until the 19th century, and only sparsely and sporadically then. However, it is now rapidly making up for lost time: southern Nevada is one of the fastest growing areas in the country today!

In 2000, Nevada’s population was predominantly Catholic, with two counties of LDS Mormons, and a small western county of Methodists.


This is a picture of a 19th century Nevada settlement. I found this picture on Google.
