When Iron County, Utah Territory was created 3 March 1852[1] [2] [3] it extended into present-day Nevada from Utah Territory's eastern boundary to the western edge of the Great Basin in California between Milliard and Washington counties in Utah Territory.

On 5 January 1856 the Utah legislature reduced Iron County land in present-day Nevada by carving out part of Carson County. In 1861 the U.S. Congress created Nevada Territory with its eastern border at 116° W, and in 1862 moved Nevada's eastern border one degree of longitude east, and repeated that again in 1866, each time reducing Iron County, Utah.[4] Former Iron County land in present-day Nevada was used eventually to form parts of Douglas, Lyon, Mineral, Esmeralda, Nye, and Lincoln, counties.[5]
