Henderson Nevada

In Henderson, Nevada, real estate prices are some of the most affordable in the nation. Incorporated in 1953, Henderson, Nevada, has developed into a community with premier services and amenities. Henderson has become a popular destination for potential homeowners.

Henderson was actually "born in America's defense" ten years prior to its incorporation during World War II with the building of the Basic Magnesium Plant. The plant supplied the US War Department with magnesium for munitions and airplane parts. Former Mayor Jim Gibson's (1997-2009) own grandfather, Fred Gibson, was one of the original engineers sent to Great Britain to learn the secret of creating the "miracle metal" which would eventually help the United States and the allies win the war.

In 1947, magnesium production was no longer necessary for defense and most of the 14,000 BMI employees moved away and over half the townsite houses, built to house plant workers, went vacant. In 1947 the United States War Asset Administration actually offered Henderson for sale as war surplus property. The Nevada Legislature, In an effort to save the city spent a weekend visiting Henderson evaluating the possibility of state administration of Basic Magnesium. The legislators  approved a bill giving the Colorado River Commission of Nevada the authority to purchase the industrial plants. Governor Vail Pittman signed the Bill on March 27, 1947, helping save Henderson from becoming war surplus property.

With the help of local industry, the City of Henderson, Nevada, was officially incorporated on April 16, 1953 and on May 23, 1953, Henderson population elected Dr. Jim French as the town's first Mayor. The City quickly began to grow and today, the City of Henderson has grown to more than 103 square miles and is the second largest city in Nevada.
