FYI Department

Pahrump was originally inhabited by the Southern Paiute native people. It was slowly inhabited by European settlers in the late 19th century. They reportedly chose the name for Pahrump after the original indigenous name Pah-Rimpi, or “Water Rock,” so named because of the abundant artesian wells in the valley.

Today there are only a little over nine thousand people, so sparsely populated is a good description.
