The first reported European visitor to the Las Vegas Valley was Raphael Rivera in 1829. In the 19th century, areas of the valley contained artesian wells that supported extensive green areas or meadows (vegas in Spanish); hence the name Las Vegas. Established in 1905, Las Vegas was incorporated as a city in 1911.
