United States Gotoarrow.png Nevada Gotoarrow.png Juab County

When Juab County, Utah Territory was created 3 March 1852[1] [2] [3] [4] it extended into present-day Nevada from Sanpete County, Utah on the east to the western edge of the Great Basin in California between Tooele and Millard counties in Utah Territory.

Utah Territory's old 1856 counties are named in orange. Present-day Nevada counties are outlined in white.
On 5 January 1856 Juab County was reduced significantly, and former Juab County land in present-day Nevada was used to form part of Carson, Humboldt, and Saint Mary's counties.[5] Juab County was further reduced in size in 1866.[5]

Some records for old Juab County, Utah Territory may have been transferred to, or may have been re-recorded in the new counties formed from the old Juab. See also:
