During the 1860s, Conrad Kiel established a ranch at the modern-day intersection of Carey Street and Losee Road in what would be North Las Vegas. In 1917, libertarian Thomas L. Williams of Eureka, Utah visited the valley, back when Las Vegas, Las Vegas Indian Colony, and Arden were the only entities in the valley. He was pleased by the abundance of the valley's artesian water and potential for agriculture. Two years later in 1919, he moved himself and his family (his wife and three sons) to a 160-acre piece of land a mile from Las Vegas and founded his town. Between 1928 and 1935, a large influx of workers from the Hoover Dam settled in Williams' town, as Las Vegas was intolerant towards them. In 1957, North Vegas planned to annex an area to its southeast, and in response, the Clark County Commission created the town of Sunrise Manor to prevent further annexation attempts. On May 13, 1964, First Lieutenant Raynor Lee Hebert, a student pilot from Port Arthur, Texas, took off from Nellis Air Force Base and crashed his F-105 fighter jet. Hebert was killed and four civilians were injured.
