The historical walking tour provides an informative, rich and colorful account of the development of Henderson, starting with its birth during the industrialization period to support World War II efforts to the vibrant city it has become today. The tour will cover the first homes, schools, businesses, casinos and more, and bring to life the people who made a difference in making the new city a community. It also reveals fun facts, such as how Water Street was named, the major impact of Basic Magnesium Inc., and how a place that was meant to be a temporary stay for company workers has grown into Nevada’s second largest city.
