Henderson is the second largest city in Nevada, with an estimated population of 257,700. Located in the southeast end of the Las Vegas Valley, Henderson is a city in Clark County and part of the Las Vegas metropolitan area. Referred to as the other side of southern Nevada, the city of Henderson is nestled among three of the most notable man-made attractions – the neon of Vegas, the engineering marvel of Hoover Dam, and the peaceful beauty of Lake Mead. The city's official slogan "Henderson-a Place to Call Home" reflects a community that enjoys small town values while benefiting from big city efficiencies, and offers a plethora of cultural events, miles of trails and recreational facilities, and renowned resorts, restaurants and shopping. In 2006, Money magazine ranked Henderson 20th in its annual list of the “Top 100 Places to Live” in the United States.
Henderson was actually "born in America's defense", ten years before its incorporation, during World War II with the building of the Basic Magnesium Plant in the 1940s. The plant supplied the United States War Department with magnesium, the "miracle metal", for munitions and airplane parts. For most of Henderson's short history, the city has been a manufacturing center and a producer of metals and industrial chemicals. In recent decades, Henderson's economy has diversified to include other industries such as education services, medical and biomedical technology, and tourism and services. Some of the larger companies in Henderson include Levi Strauss & Company, Ocean Spray, Ford Credit, and Good Humor-Breyers.
