Lund is a small town and census-designated place in White Pine County, Nevada, United States. The population of Lund as of 2010 was 282.[1]

Etymology

Lund was named for Anthon H. Lund.[2]

History

Lund was settled in 1898 on land that the United States government had given The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) in lieu of land that had been confiscated under the Edmunds–Tucker Act. The first settlers were members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,[3] and the Church still has a ward in Lund.

On June 24, 2020, the Brown Fire threatened Lund, resulting in residents on the south side to be evacuated from their homes. Residents were allowed to return that evening. The Brown Fire burned over 8,000 acres (3,237 ha).[4][5]

Transportation

Lund is served by Nevada State Route 318 which passes through the town.

Education

Lund has a high school, Lund High School, and is part of the White Pine County School District. The town also had a primary school, Lund Grade School, which was built in 1915 and operated for 90 years until 2005. The school was added the National Register of Historic Places in 2018 after being nominated by residents of Lund.[6]
