Pahrump, Nevada Real Estate
Pahrump: Land of the Water-Rock
Originally inhabited by the Shoshone, the area that today is Pahrump, Nevada, was discovered and populated by American settlers in the late 19th century. They reportedly chose the name for the valley which Pahrump is named after from the original indigenous name Pah-Rimpi, or "Water Rock," so named because of the abundant artesian wells in the valley. Because of these artesian wells, the new inhabitants of Pahrump Valley began a number of large ranch-style holdings, mostly over 1000 acres (4 km²) in size. On these ranches, alfalfa, cotton, and livestock were raised.
As recent as the mid-1960s, Pahrump had no telephone service and the only roads in were gravel or dirt. However, as Las Vegas grew, real estate speculation became more popular in the area, which led to increased interest in Pahrump. This led to the introduction of telephone service and the construction of a paved highway from Las Vegas to Pahrump. Later a second paved road was introduced that went from Pahrump to neighboring Shoshone, California, which provided a link to the Death Valley area as well as a shorter route to those wishing to travel to Los Angeles or other areas in California. In 1972 Pahrump's first high school was constructed.
Since then, Pahrump has grown almost exponentially, increasing from about 2000 residents in 1980 to almost 25,000 in 2000.
