Churchill County is truly the "Business Oasis of Nevada." Surrounded by high desert plains, it is a region full of green fields, fertile pastures and sparkling rivers and lakes. Fallon, the principal city and county seat, offers a warm, hometown atmosphere and an economic climate where businesses can prosper.

The county's prime location in the west-central Nevada offers easy access to the entire western state region. We are in close proximity to Idaho, California, Oregon and Utah. We are one hour from Reno, and one-and-one-half hours from beautiful Lake Tahoe.

The area is ideal for business. We have sensible environmental regulations and policies, as well as affordable property and very low property taxes. Churchill County is an excellent place to do business because of its temperate climate, excellent location and transportation network, attractive, moderate cost of living, quality schools and educational environment, including a branch of the Western Nevada College, favorable, pro-business tax structure, and well-developed retail sector.
