When Millard County, Utah Territory 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 Juab and Iron counties in Utah Territory.

On 5 January 1856 the Utah legislature reduced Millard 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 Millard County, Utah.[3] Former Millard County land in present-day Nevada was used eventually to form parts of Churchill, Mineral, Nye, Lander, Eureka, White Pine, and Lincoln, counties.[4]
