    History of Fallon

    Fallon Relocation Guide | NVGemme Real Estate | 2019

    Fallon used to just be a “dusty crossroads” between the towns of St. Clair and Stillwater. The local Native
    Americans referred to Fallon as “Jim’s Town.” Jim Richards operated his store very near Mike and Eliza Fallon’s
    post office and ranch house, which was established in 1896.
    There were soon rumors about a project to build a dam and canal to irrigate, or “reclaim”, desert lands. Following
    the assassination of President McKinley in 1901, longtime conservationist Theodore Roosevelt became
    President. He soon signed the papers which established the Reclamation Act of 1902 and a federal reclamation
    system began financed from the sale of public lands. The Reclamation Act also created the United States
    Reclamation Service (USRS).
    After this national event, Fallon’s dusty crossroads would never be the same! Mike Fallon sold his ranch to Warren
    W. Williams, who proceeded to have the land platted and began advertising the sale of lots. Fallon was officially
    incorporated in 1908 and its main goal was to provide the best services to its residents. Fallon at that time was
    expected to have a population of about 20,000 in just 2 years.
    Fallon is also home to the Fallon Naval Air Station which was established in 1942. In 1959 the runway for the Air
    Station was extended to 14,000 feet and since 1972 the base has served as a full-fledged Naval Air Station that
    specializes in pilot training.
    Fallon has also long been known as the “Oasis of Nevada.” This was first used in 1948 by the Fallon Chamber of
    Commerce, and has stuck with the town since then. Fallon and its surrounding countryside are truly lush cultural
    and agricultural havens in the rural Nevada desert.

    Reno Business and Gaming

    the last couple of decades, Reno and Sparks have become much more than
    just gaming cities. With many prominent corporations residing in the

    Nevada State Parks

    Camping, fishing, hiking, swimming, nature study, star-gazing—not your thing? How about mountain biking, horseback riding,
    boating, water skiing, snowshoeing, ice-skating? Choose your favorite outdoor activity and Nevada State Parks will provide a place
    for it. Nevada’s 23 state parks, recreation areas, and historic sites are stretched across terrains as diverse as alpine forests and
    bone-dry deserts. Among them are natural lakes and man-made reservoirs, such as world-famous, 22 miles long Lake Tahoe or the
    much smaller Echo Canyon and its 35-acre reservoir.
    Other parks provide glimpses into the past. Valley of Fire is one of the state’s oldest, with 3,000-year-old petroglyphs carved in
    sandstone and breathtaking views of the maroon-colored rock formations created during the age of the dinosaurs. Mormon Station
    in Genoa and the Old Las Vegas Mormon Fort feature replicas of 19th-century fortifications and visitor centers explaining regional
    history.
    Many campgrounds and RV facilities are open all year, depending on the weather – you can even stay in a yurt at Cave Lake State
    Park near Ely. Trailheads are well marked, and facilities at many parks include RV dump stations, showers and day use facilities for
    groups. For more information on Off-highway Vehicles (OHV) registration, go to the Department of Motor Vehicles at dmvnv.com.
