The four largest religious groups in Nevada before 1900 were:

  • Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
  • Methodist,
  • Protestant Episcopal,
  • Roman Catholic.

For a history of seven major denominations in Nevada, see Leon L. Loofbourow, Steeples among the Sage . . . (Oakland,California: Lake Park Press, 1964; Family History Library book 979.3 K2L).
