Nevada was explored by Europeans in the 1820s and in the 1840s by Kit Carson and John C. Fremont. The U.S. obtained the region in 1848 after the Mexican War and a Mormon trading post near Genoa was the first permanent settlement. Much of Nevada is still uninhabited by humans; desert animals and sagebrush plants, however, thrive.
The Comstock Lode made Nevada famous. The biggest silver deposit in the U.S. was found here in 1859. Oil was found in 1954.
Gambling and divorce as industries came about in the early 1930s. Las Vegas really began to boom in the 1950s and today attracts thousands of vacationers, tourists, business people and gamblers each year. In fact, gambling produces over a third of the state's revenue. Stunning Lake Tahoe is also a major tourist draw.
The state raises cattle, hay, barley, wheat, alfalfa, and potatoes. Manufacturers produce lawn and garden irrigation devices, gaming equipment, machinery and seismic monitoring devices.
Nevada is the driest state in the country with just seven inches of rain falling each year on average.

Why Would Someone Age 55+ Retire in an All Ages Development?
While communities designed for people age 55 or better have a lot of benefits, not everyone wants to retire in a development where most of the residents are the same age and often of the same socioeconomic background. All ages community by law cannot discriminate based on age so they nearly always have a wide range of residents, from families and single professionals to empty nesters and often retirees. Many older all ages neighborhoods are organic, that is having grown over time and never having been "master planned." These usually do not have amenities such as a pool, tennis courts, etc. But more and more new all ages communities are master planned, gated, with covenants and HOA fees. Retirees often prefer these to 55+ communities because they allow more interaction with people from more cross sections of the country.
