A Little About Lovelock
The City of Lovelock is a busy little town on Interstate 80 in northern Nevada and was incorporated on September 26, 1917, two years before Pershing County was carved out from Humboldt County. Lovelock is 2 square miles in size and home to approximately 2400 people. Surrounded by agriculture, mining, and high desert, the community is picturesque in its setting. Many historic sites still exist in the community, including the Pershing County Courthouse, Marzen House Museum, Lovers Lock Plaza and the Lovelock Train Depot.
Originally named after George Lovelock, a pioneer in developing mineral and agricultural resources in the area, the town was originally founded in 1849 as a stop for settlers on route to California. During the 1860’s, an English settler named George Lovelock arrived and later purchased 320 acres of land along with the oldest water rights on the nearby Humboldt River.
Today, Lovelock, Nevada remains rooted in mining, agriculture, and tourism. Lovelock is expanding its diversification with hydroponics, solar, light manufacturing, logistics, and technology.
With its close proximity (50 miles) to the Reno/Fernley development corridor, it offers a lower-cost, quick permitting alternative for new and expanding businesses.
