Henderson is the fastest-growing large city (150,000 pop.) in the United States. Henderson is in Clark County, Nevada, five miles southeast of Las Vegas.

As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 175,381. The latest Census estimate (2004) placed the population at 224,829. The city's planning and development department estimates the population at 249,800 as of 2006.

The township of Henderson emerged in the 1940s to supply the country with magnesium, the "miracle metal" of World War II. Although "born in America's defense," Henderson's future after the war was uncertain until April 16, 1953 when city incorporation papers were signed.

Henderson is frequently featured on the TV drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as the location of residence of a victim or other person of interest.

The now-demolished theme park "Old Vegas", which was located in Henderson, was used for several outdoor scenes for the Western TV series Gunsmoke. The property is now the site of a housing development, also named "Old Vegas".
