Glendale Nevada History

Glendale was settled in 1855.

The community was named for the valley in which it is situated.

It was formally established as an unincorporated town in 1979 and at that time, it consisted entirely of land owned by Charlie Hester, who operated a motel, gas station, and restaurant. 

The town was dissolved in 2001 because its population had declined to four, making it impossible to fill the five seats on the town board and Glendale later became part of the unincorporated town of Moapa Valley.

In 2009, the town boundaries were shifted, making Glendale part of Moapa.

Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!
