Fastest Growing Counties For the 21st Century

10 Lyon County NV
Tenth Fastest Growing County In the Nation
Lyon County, Nevada
Seat: Yerington

Lyon County enjoyed phenomenal growth during the first few years of the twenty first century. According to the U.S. Census Bureau estimates Lyon County is the tenth fastest growing county in America based on percent of growth between January 2000 and July 2006 for all counties that began the century with more than ten thousand residents.

Yerington’s original name was Pizen Switch due to a business that used to sell liquor that tasted like poison. It was later renamed Yerington after H. M. Yerington, a powerful railroad executive, in an attempt to flatter him enough to bring a rail line to the town.

Prostitution is licensed and legalized in Lyon County and features the Moonlite Bunny Ranch and the Sagebrush Ranch. On December 8, 2002, the Moonlite was featured on HBO's America Undercover show special, Cathouse. As of 2007, it is the only brothel featured on Cathouse: The Series, now airing in a monthly second season on HBO from February 2007 to July 2007.

Lyon County which was established in 1861, had already grown in population to 34,501 by the year 2000. But in the six years that marked the beginning of the 21 Century, the county increased the number of inhabitants by 48.5 percent bringing the estimated total population in July 2006 to 51,231.

The astounding growth of the last six years has made Lyon County the number 1 fastest growing county in the Silver State of Nevada and the tenth fastest in the nation.

Although no figures are available to determine how the growth may have affected the price of homes in the area, in the year 2000 the median cost for a home within the 1,994 square mile jurisdiction was $119,200.
