History & History Related Items

Lovelock history:

The area was first known as Big Meadows because of the green grass and abundance of water near here. Many stopped here to rest before moving on into the desert. Though Lovelock was part of Humboldt County originally, it became part of Pershing County on 19 March 1919 when Pershing County was created. Lovelock was named the county seat at this time. Big Meadows was about two miles from the present town site, but the entire area took that name. George Lovelock, an English Quartz miner, began a stage station here. He took ownership of the land in April of 1871
