Welcome to HENDERSON Civic CenterThe city of Henderson Nevada is one of the great untold stories of western expansion. A city built from the imagination of founders who saw potential in the natural resources and uncommon beauty of the landscape and sky, Henderson has a proud and dynamic history. From the founding of Basic Magnesium, Incorporated (BMI) in 1941, a plant that supplied much-needed magnesium ingots to the WWII effort, to its emergence today as the second largest city in Nevada, Henderson has always been ‘a place to call home.’

The Henderson Historical Society (HHS) is a gathering of like-minded individuals who share a deep respect for the city’s history and are actively engaged in protecting the stories, photos, and folklore from Henderson’s past. A virtual, online association, the HHS provides a place for supporters to explore the character, charm, and events that built this great city.

Supported by our Membership, an enthusiastic cadre of volunteers known as the Friends of the HHS, and a variety of Projects & Events, and educational outreach, the HSS provides a unique opportunity to discover the remarkable history of Henderson and the city’s contribution to the growth and development of Nevada.

Our Mission: To foster public awareness and pride and to preserve the history of Henderson, Nevada for future generations.
