HISTORY:

Moapa Valley has been inhabited since approximately 1000 B.C. according to archeological research. The earliest inhabitants were American Indians including the Pueblos until around A.D. 1150, and after that the Paiute Indians. The Moapa Band of Paiutes have a reservation in Moapa,and operate the Moapa Tribal Plaza at the East Entrance of the Valley of Fire State Park.

The Mormons started an agricultural community along the Muddy River at St. Thomas (abandoned and submerged when Hoover Dam was built) in 1864. Additional towns were settled including St. Joseph (currently Logandale), Overton, Westpoint (currently Moapa), and Kaolin (suffered the same fate as St. Thomas).
