Boulder City in Clark County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
McKeeversville, Boulder City's Predecessor
By 1940, only five residents remained. Local authorities tried to close down the settlement, but World War II brought new families looking for housing and the small camp grew again. When Boulder City was incorporated in 1960, the federal government turned over control of the land to the new city. The bill allowing the transfer included language which allowed residents in McKeeversville to buy their own lots. Later the name of the area changed to Lakeview, though some remnants of the 1930's camp still stand.
