When Weber County, Utah Territory was created 3 March 1852[1] [2] [3] 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 used to form part of Carson, Humboldt, and Saint Mary's counties.[4]
