Nevada Facts

Historical Myths: Facing the Truth About Some of Our Best But Tallest Tales

nevada150-(10)

By Guy Rocha, former Nevada State Archivist

Nevada history books and newspapers all too often tell stories that distort the truth. Occasionally historians make mistakes, sometimes newspaper reporters get the wrong information, and oftentimes advertisers and civic promoters embellish and exaggerate the facts to promote their towns or businesses. Once a story appears in print, it generally gets repeated again and again, making it more and more believable. What’s true? What really happened? How do you know it’s true? You can find out right here.

*These myths are a reflection of the information available at the time they were written by former State Archivist Rocha. The Nevada State Archives makes no guarantee as to their continued accuracy as new facts become available.
