Lander was one of the original nine counties created.

Named for Frederick W. Lander; chief engineer of a federal wagon route through the area in 1857. Created in 1862.

This County came about as the result of a mining boom on the Reese River, along the old pony express line.

Taking a considerable portion of Churchill and Humboldt counties with it. Lander would be known as the "mother of counties" because so many were carved out of it.

Its first county seat was Jacobsville in 1862, Austin in 1863 and Battle Mountain in 1979.
