The City’s History Began with One Man with His Gas Station - Whiskey Pete

Take a Charter Bus Tour around Primm’s Old Saloon, Go Skydiving or Enjoy an ATV Adventure

The history of Primm began with a settler, Pete MacIntyre, who went by the name of Whiskey Pete. MacIntyre, initially, made a living selling gas at his gas station located along the state line between Nevada and California. Accordingly, the gas station wasn’t doing very well and in order to survive, Whiskey Pete started bootlegging. He may have died in 1933 but his ‘legend’ lived on in the city. During a construction of a road, Whiskey Pete’s body was accidentally exhumed but was moved to a site where he once used for his bootlegging activities. The existence of casinos had its start in the early 1950s right down to the 1970s. It started with a man named Dale Hamilton who owned State Line and a Chevron gas station with a number of casinos and a small cafe. Hamilton also offered towing and auto repair services and it was thanks to Hamilton’s persistence that the city got an interchange, after various trips to Carson City to plead for one. The city was formerly referred to as State Line but the name was changed to Primm in an effort to avoid confusion with another Nevada City known as Stateline. It took on the name of the town’s original developer, Ernest Jay Primm instead. Today, the city thrives on its casinos and most of the residents of Primm works for the casinos. The people of Nevada prides themselves for playing host to one of the annual off-road races, Terrible’s SCORE Primm 300 which includes races like Baja 1000, Baja 500, San Felipe 250 and Laughlin Desert Challenge. It was also chosen to host the 20th World’s Strongest Man, participated in the 2004 DARPA Grand Challenge and also held the Stateline Supermoto Challenge. Some of its most popular attractions includes the Primm Valley Resort, Whiskey Pete’s, Buffalo Bill’s, Fashion Outlets of Las Vegas and it has been said that there will be a new airport to the north of Primm, Ivanpah Valley Airport.
