LYON COUNTY, NV. Named after Nathaniel Lyon, a Union General during the American Civil War, the county located in the western-central part of Nevada is known for its scenic beauty, with many outdoor recreation opportunities available to residents and visitors. One being, the Walker River, which runs through the county and is a popular destination for various water activities, including kayaking and fishing. The river is regularly stocked with rainbow and brown trout, and is even home to the Lahontan cutthroat trout, which is Nevada’s state fish.
Notable cities and towns in the county include Dayton, Silver Springs, Silver City, and Smith Valley; the community of Smith Valley is divided into two main areas: Smith and Wellington. Throughout the county, there are a variety of historic sites and landmarks to explore, to the north, a historic mining town known for its well-preserved 19th-century architecture and Wild West history and the Walker River State Recreation Area to the south. Other popular attractions include the Lyon County Museum in Yerington, the Nevada State Railroad Museum in Carson City, the Lahontan Reservoir State Recreation Area, the Dayton State Park, and the historic town of Virginia City, which was once a booming mining camp after the discovery of the Comstock Lode.
A rich cultural heritage indeed, Lyon County was one of the original nine counties created when Nevada became a state in 1861 and has since grown to incorporate a diverse economy with opportunities in mining, agriculture, tourism, and other industries. The county is home to several major employers, including the Robinson Mine, the Yerington Paiute Tribe, and the Lyon County School District, and still operates active mines, including the Robinson Mine, which is one of the largest copper mines in the United States. Agriculture is also an important industry in the county, with alfalfa, corn, and hay being some of the main crops grown.
For those seeking leisure, Lyon County offers various community functions, including the annual Lyon County Fair and Rodeo held every August since 1919, and the Smith Valley Fall Festival, which features a parade, craft fair, live music, and a rodeo. Nature enthusiasts can enjoy popular outdoor activities like soaking in hot springs such as the Carson Hot Springs and the historic 1862 Hot Springs Resort in Genoa, or skiing in Lake Tahoe during the winter months. The unique blend of natural beauty, history, and economic opportunities, come together to shape an attractive place to live, work, and visit.
WESTERN NEVADA. The state capital, Carson City, and several populous counties, including Washoe, Storey, Lyon, and Douglas, comprise the western-central region of Nevada and are known for their natural beauty, with diverse landscapes that include mountains, deserts, lakes, and rivers. State government buildings, including the Nevada State Capitol and the Nevada State Museum can be found in Carson City, as well as an historic downtown area featuring an assortment of art galleries and restaurants.
The region is home to the Virginia and Truckee Railroad, which operated in the late 1800s and the early 1900s and holds the title for the “crookedest railroad in the world” due to its winding path through the Sierra Nevada mountains. Western Nevada is also where Mark Twain wrote several of his famous works, including “Roughing It,” while working as a reporter for the Territorial Enterprise newspaper and living in the area.
The largest city in western Nevada, Reno, offers a vibrant nightlife, with a bustling casino industry, a plethora of outdoor recreation opportunities, various major events, and houses the University of Nevada, which is known for its strong research programs and athletic teams. Straddling the border between California and Nevada is Lake Tahoe, one of the largest freshwater lakes in the U.S and located in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range—surely one of the most popular destinations for outdoor recreation, including skiing, snowboarding, hiking, and boating. Several ski resorts surround the area, including Heavenly Mountain Resort, NorthStar California Resort, and Squaw Valley Ski Resort.
Mining has historically been an important industry in Western Nevada, with silver, gold, and other minerals being extracted from the region’s mines. Today, mining still plays a role in the area’s economy, with companies such as Barrick Gold and Newmont Mining operating in the region. It has also become a hub for technology companies, with major employers including Tesla and Microsoft. The area’s proximity to the San Francisco Bay Area and its lower cost of living and business costs have made it an attractive location for tech companies to set up operations.
Besides the convenient location, the state’s favorable tax environment has contributed to its economic growth and offers many economic benefits. Even the Wall Street Journal made a point to discuss the benefits of living in Nevada: residents do not pay income tax, and there is no corporate, franchise, estate or inheritance tax, in addition to relatively low property taxes and virtually no natural disasters. From the diverse economy to the wealth of outdoor activities, the region offers something for everyone.
