Las Vegas, Nevada is the largest city in the state by population as well as the county seat of Clark County. Today Las Vegas is known as a tourist destination for its nightlife, gambling and entertainment, but the city was originally settled by missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, striving to convert the Indian population to Mormonism. The Mormons built a fort in Las Vegas for travelers along the “Mormon Corridor” from Salt Lake City to San Bernardino, but the fort was abandoned in 1857.
In 1905, the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad auctioned the land that is now Las Vegas and the city was incorporated as a railroad town in 1911. Las Vegas became a popular railroad town into the 20th century as a staging point for mines in the area and pioneers headed west. As the railroad expanded, Las Vegas was no longer a center for railroad traffic but in 1931, as work started on the Hoover Dam, Las Vegas experienced a boom of visitors and new residents working on the dam, or hoping to find work. The mostly male increase in population led local entrepreneurs to develop casinos and entertainment districts for the construction workers.
During World War II, the inexpensive and remote Las Vegas Valley attracted defense industries leading to the establishment of Nellis Air Force Base and the Basic Management Complex where raw materials were provided to wartime industries. After WWII, Las Vegas turned to tourism to support the economy and major development of hotels, casinos and entertainment flourished throughout the remainder of the 20th century.
The history of construction and development in Las Vegas put many workers at an increased risk of developing mesothelioma cancer from asbestos exposure on the job.
