We are delighted to welcome you to one of the fastest growing cities in America. As the second largest city in Nevada, we know you will enjoy making Henderson "A Place to Call Home."
Henderson was "born in America's defense" during World War II, supplying the US War Department with magnesium for munitions and airplane parts. Officially incorporated in 1953, Henderson has grown into a community of small town values with big city efficiencies. The largest full-service city in the state of Nevada has become a premier residential community where family is valued and quality public services are provided.
Henderson, referred to as the other side of Southern Nevada, is located just 7 miles from the famed Las Vegas Strip and a couple of miles from beautiful Lake Mead. Known throughout the nation for its premier master-planned communities, outstanding parks and recreation facilities and cultural arts, Henderson offers an enhanced quality of life for those who choose to live, learn, work and play here.
Henderson is just as attractive to new businesses as it is to new residents. Some of the nation's best-known names in business, including Ford Credit, Levi Strauss and Ocean Spray, have built facilities in Henderson, evidence of the City's pro-business environment. Resorts such as Loews Lake Las Vegas Resort, Ritz-Carlton and the Green Valley Ranch Resort have also found Henderson attractive, building extraordinary properties that are suitable to the residential nature of the community.
For the next 50 years, the City of Henderson has a bright future in Southern Nevada. Master-planned residential areas, compatible business development, new roads and public works projects, parks and recreation facilities and schools serve to make Henderson, Nevada one of the nation's most dynamic communities. We're excited to welcome you to our city.
