United States Gotoarrow.png Nevada Gotoarrow.png Weber County

When Weber County, Utah was created 3 March 1852[1] it extended into present-day Nevada from the shore of the Great Salt Lake on the east to the western edge of the Great Basin in California as the northwestern most county in Utah Territory.

On 5 January 1856 Weber County was reduced significantly, and former Weber County land in present-day Nevada was given over to form Carson, Humboldt, and Saint Mary's counties.[2]

For records of Weber County in what is present-day Nevada, see:
