History & History Related Items

Pahrump history:

Pahrump is a Paiute word which means "water rock" or "place where big waters flow." Pah standing for water and Rimpi meaning stone or rock. In recent years reports have shown that the entire valley sits on a huge aquifer of about 22 million acre-feet of water. It is because of this water that most in the area began as farmers, mainly alfalfa and cotton. The area remained remote and fairly primitive until the 1960's. At this time, there were no paved roads or even telephone service here. As Las Vegas began to grow, interest in the Pahrump area also increased. Developers built the first road and phone lines were brought in. Since the late 1970's, Pahrump has grown tremendously. Farming has greatly diminished and the area has attracted a number of well-known residents, such as Michael Jackson.
