Henderson, NV

Henderson is a city in Clark County, Nevada. The city is part of the Las Vegas metropolitan area, which spans the entire Las Vegas Valley. It is the second largest city in Nevada, after Las Vegas, with an estimated population of 257,729 in the 2010 census.[1] It occupies the southeast end of the valley, at an elevation of approximately 1,330 feet (410m). In 2011, Forbes magazine ranked Henderson as America's second safest city.[2] Analysts attribute this to Henderson being an affluent city, with a high median income and amenities catering to local residents. This limits movement throughout the area and to nearby Las Vegas. Henderson has also been named as "One of the Best Cities to Live in America" by Bloomberg Businessweek.[3] The township of Henderson first emerged in the 1940s during World War II with the building of the Basic Magnesium Plant. Henderson quickly became a main supplier of magnesium in the United States, the "miracle metal" of World War II.[4] The plant supplied the US War Department with magnesium for incendiary munition casings and airplane engines, frames, and other parts. A quarter of all US wartime magnesium came from the Henderson Plant to strengthen aluminum, using 25% of Hoover Dam's power to separate the metal from its ore by electrolysis.[5] Mayor Jim Gibson's grandfather, Fred D. Gibson, was one of the original engineers sent to Great Britain to learn the secret of creating the "miracle metal" which would eventually help the United States and its allies win the war. Although "born in America's defense," Henderson's future after World War II was uncertain. In 1947, magnesium production was no longer necessary for defense, and the majority of the 14,000 BMI employees moved away. Enrollment in the school system was reduced by two thirds and well over half the townsite houses, built to house plant workers, became vacant. In 1947, the United States War Asset Administration had offered Henderson for sale as war surplus property.
