When Desert County, Utah was created 3 March 1852[1] [2] it extended into present-day Nevada from the shore of the Great Salt Lake on the east to the western edge of the Great Basin in California between Weber and Tooele counties in Utah Territory.

On 5 January 1856 Desert County was reduced significantly, and former Desert County land in present-day Nevada was used to form part of Carson, Humboldt, and Saint Mary's counties.[3] Desert County was extinguished 17 January 1862 and her remaining land was split between Box Elder and Tooele counties.[2]
