United States Gotoarrow.png Nevada Gotoarrow.png Iron County

Iron County, Utah Territory was created 3 March 1852[1] [2] [3] [4] by the Utah legislature from Little Salt Lake County, Utah. Iron County 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.

Utah Territory's old 1856 counties are named in orange. Present-day Nevada counties are outlined in white.
On 5 January 1856 the Utah legislature reduced Iron County land in present-day Nevada by carving out part of Carson County and the southern part of Beaver 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.[5] Former Iron County land in present-day Nevada was used eventually to form parts of Douglas, Lyon, Mineral, Esmeralda, Nye, and Lincoln, counties.[6]
