Overton is an Unincorporated Town located in Clark County, Nevada. The town is on the north end of Lake Mead. The town is home to Perkins Field airport and Echo Bay Airport.HistoryOverton was originally settled in 1869 with Helaman Pratt serving as branch president. A regular LDS branch was organized there in 1883. In the 1880s, Overton was the location of the only store in the lower Moapa Valley and attracted people from neighboring localities who arrived in Overton to buy supplies. In the 1930s, the town of St. Thomas was submerged by water as Lake Mead was being filled, and the majority of its population relocated to Overton. After that, Overton developed as the main core of the business community in the lower Moapa Valley. It also hosted most of the social events in the area.GeographyOverton is located in Moapa Valley 65mi northeast of Las Vegas, Nevada. The town features a stunning landscape of mesas, foothills, and nearby Lake Mead. It is also the settlement closest to Valley of Fire State Park.DemographicsOverton is in the Moapa Valley, Nevada Census Bureau CDP.
