Henderson, Nevada: Incorporated in 1953, Henderson is Nevadas second largest city with more than 302,000 residents. Our city is pleased to be recognized as the Second Safest City in America by Forbes magazine and three times named to MONEY magazines list of Best Places to Live in America. Our favorable tax structure, award-winning health care locations, accredited parks, police and fire departments all contribute to these accolades setting our community apart.

While our city has grown to host a variety of metropolitan cultural arts and nationally recognized special events, we retain our small-town values and atmosphere. Annual events and local parades are still held in the Water Street District, our original main street. Our community also celebrates the grand openings of local businesses, accomplishments of our youth and contributions of our centenarians. With numerous parks, mixed-use shopping areas, master-planned communities and senior living neighborhoods, Henderson is a place where all can live, learn, work and play. Henderson is not just a place to live, but truly a place to call home.
