Henderson City celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2003. When the Basic Magnesium Factory was built in the 1940s to supply magnesium, a "magical metal" of World War II, to the country, it appeared as a town. The factory supplied the Department of War of the United States with magnesium for parts such as the enclosure of the firebomb, the engine of the aircraft and the airframe. Fred D. Gibson, the grandfather of Mayor Jim Gibson, was one of the first engineers sent to England to learn the secret of producing "magic metals" and this eventually contributed to the victory of the United States and the Allied forces in the war. Henderson was born for the defense of the United States, but on April 16, 1953, when the post-war situation was uncertain, the city system was established.
In 1947, magnesium was no longer needed for defense, and most of the 14,000 employees of the Basic Magnesium Company left the town. School enrollment decreased by one-third and more than half of the houses built for factory workers were vacant. The Department of Asset Supervision of the Ministry of Army actually proposed selling excessive assets during the war to Henderson City.
To save Henderson City, the Nevada State Council visited Henderson City on the weekend to investigate the possibility of managing the Basic Magnesium Company in the state. Within days of the visit, Congress gave the Colorado River Management Committee in Nevada the right to buy the plant. The Governor of Bale Pitman signed the bill on March 27, 1947 to save the Henderson City's wartime excess assets.
The city of Henderson was officially established in 1953 with the help of local industry. On May 23 of the same year, the population was 7,410 and Dr. Jim French was elected as the first mayor. The city, which initially had only 13 square miles (34 km2) in area, grew rapidly and began to prosper. Today, the area has expanded to 94 square miles (240 km 2), making it the second largest city in the population in Nevada. The official slogan, "Henderson, the place to call home," reflects the community where we can enjoy the value of small towns and pursue the efficiency of big cities.
The number of major shopping malls, movie theaters, restaurants and casino resorts has increased, and Henderson's inhabitants have various options in their spare time. Bordering the city of Las Vegas, it is not far from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip. "Shakespeare in the Park" marks the 10th anniversary of Henderson's long-standing support for artistic and cultural programs in 1996. The city has the largest recreation facility in Nevada, called "Multi-Generation Facility of Liberty Point," and the state's only wildlife preservation zone. It also supports various cultural events, and many of them are held at the outdoor circular stadium, the largest of such facilities in Nevada.
It is a few miles away from McCarren International Airport, and Henderson Igzecuteb Airport, recently acquired by Clark County, is planned to be renovated and developed as an alternative to McCarren Airport.

rocket-fuel plant fire
In 1988, the rocket fuel plant of the Nevada Pacific Industrial Production Company (abbreviated as PEPCON) was engulfed in flames. Several explosions occurred, and at one time, a magnitude of magnitude 3 was recorded. Two people were killed. The explosion moved the development direction of Henderson City from industry to the large-scale residential area where it is now. There are no traces of the PEPCON explosion today, and most of the site is an office building.
