Henderson, Clark, NV

Henderson was born out of the American war effort in the 1940s. America needed magnesium to match Germany’s lighter planes and more powerful bombs, and the Basic Magnesium Plant (BMI) in Henderson supplied much of the "miracle metal" that helped the Allies win World War II.

The City of Henderson was officially incorporated on April 16, 1953. At the time it was 13 square miles and had a population of 7,410.
