A Brief History of Nevada
- Controlled by the Spanish as part of Alta California until the Mexican Revolution, the land that would eventually become Nevada was ceded to the U.S. in 1848, though it would be a part of Utah Territory until 1861 and ultimately achieved statehood in 1864, a year before the end of the U.S. Civil War. Nevada is currently one of the largest producers of silver in the world and has been since the discovery of the Comstock Lode in 1859. However, unlike the California Gold Rush, which saw California’s population boom as people moved west to seek their fortune, Nevada’s population has remained relatively small, mainly due to the fact that most of the state sits in the middle of the Great Basin and it’s not uncommon to see highs topping triple digits in the summer. Most of Nevada, aside from some resort areas in the Sierra-Nevada Mountains and Las Vegas, is sparsely populated. It is also the 4th largest producer of gold in the entire world.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from Nevada
- When it comes to shipping a car to or from Nevada, you may have a hard time depending on where you’re shipping from and to. Transportation to or from Las Vegas is relatively easy and cost-effective; many carriers run routes along I-15, which runs through Vegas and connects the L.A. area in California with Salt Lake City, various smaller towns in Idaho, and eventually running to Canada. Shipping to or from Reno won’t be too difficult either, as I-80 connects the San Francisco bay area with the New York City metro area – I-80 is one of the most popular coast-to-coast interstates in the U.S. What does make things sort of funny, though, is there’s no interstate connecting Las Vegas and Reno, the state’s two largest cities, which actually makes it harder to move in-state than from out of state. However, due to the sparse population of Nevada, moving vehicles in or out can take longer as there are usually fewer carriers driving through Nevada at any given time.
