When I started my cross country trip to Virginia, I took a detour to see the “Lost City Musuem” in Overton, Nevada. This site used to be inhabited by the Anasazi Indians from 300 to 700 B.C. and was the first Indian civilization to build a city within the state of Nevada.
During the construction of the Hoover Dam, relics from the former Indian city was discovered by government workers. Due to this significant historical find, the CCC conservation built the Boulder Dam Park Museum on the site of the Pueblo Grande de Nevada Archelogical Area. Replicas of huts and storage areas built by members of the ancient city lay outside of the musuem.
The former Native American site also has a plaque recognizing a part of Mormon pioneer history, that occurred due to the Mormon Saint Thomas settlement by Lake Meade on January of 1865.
