INFO OBTAINED VIA DWGT.NET: Nevada's name comes from the Spanish word meaning "snow clad"--a reference to the snow-covered peaks of the Sierra Nevada. The discovery of the Comstock Lode, a massive deposit of silver, in 1859 brought many fortune seekers. Statehood followed shortly afterwards in 1864, when Nevada was admitted as the 36st state. Nevada is in a mountain region that includes semiarid grasslands and sandy deserts, and is the most arid state in the nation. Nevada's two main cities, Las Vegas in the South and Reno in the North, attract fortune seekers from around the world hoping to strike it rich in the many casinos located there. The largest city is Las Vegas and the capital is Carson City (near Reno), and the state flower is the sagebrush. Nevada is also known as the Silver State.
