Rioville, Nevada (first known as Junction City) was a settlement founded by Latter-day Saints in what is today Nevada but what was then considered to be Utah Territory in 1869. It was located at the point where the Muddy River flows into the Virgin River (also known as the Rio Virgin). By the 1890s the settlement was virtually abandoned.
