Henderson History

Henderson came about when the Basic Magnesium Plant was built in the 1940’s to supply the United States with magnesium for World War II. However, once the war ended, Henderson’s fate became questionable. Many of the employees of the Basic Magnesium moved away once the factory ceased production. This resulted in the vacancy of over half of the town’s houses. The Nevada Legislature fought to save the town and eventually, Henderson was incorporated as a city.
