When Juab County, Utah was created 3 March 1852[1] [2] it extended into present-day Nevada from Sanpete County, Utah on the east to the western edge of the Great Basin in California between Tooele and Millard counties in Utah Territory.

On 5 January 1856 Juab County was reduced significantly, and former Juab County land in present-day Nevada was used to form part of Carson, Humboldt, and Saint Mary's counties.[3] Juab County was further reduced in size in 1866.[3]
