Uvada Nevada History

The word “Uvada” is a portmanteau for Utah and Nevada, which is when you blend two words into one. There was also a resident is White Pine County with the name Uvada too… coincidence?

The Uvada Ranch is a few miles north of “the populated area,” which is closer to the Nevada and Utah state line.

I appreciate your website, however I think you might check the spelling of a few of your postings. Even though I find it quite difficult to tell the truth because so many of them have spelling errors, I will most certainly return.
