Mesquite, Nevada is located off the Virgin River and close to the Utah border. Early pioneers
attempted to settle this area, then known as Mesquite Flats, from 1878 to 1882. The Virgin
River, when it flooded, washed out many of the crops or canals used to water the crops of the
early settlers.

In 1887, Dudley Leavitt and his family tried to settle this area again, but eventually moved to
Bunkerville, Nevada some four years later.

.In 1894, a small group of Bunkerville families successfully settled this area and in 1898 the town
was renamed Mesquite. For over 100 years, farming was the major source of income and in
the 20th century, dairy farming was added. source:
