About Nevada, IA

In 1853, the Iowa legislature appointed Commissioners to locate a county seat for Story County. The Commissioners looked the county over and decided on a site in the vicinity of the center of the county.

One of the Commissioners, Mr. Joseph Thrift, had been a “Forty-niner” in California, and in his journey across the continent had greatly admired the Sierra Nevada’s; so he proposed the name Nevada to the new town. The town of Nevada was named ten years before the state of Nevada. Therefore, there seems to be no foundation to the claim that the town was named for the state.
