The tiny town of Cal-Nev-Ari, located at the southernmost tip of Nevada, gets its name from the states that surround it.1 Located in Nevada’s Clark County, about an hour from Las Vegas, Cal-Nev-Ari is close to the bordering states of California and Arizona.
Cal-Nev-Ari is a relatively young town founded in the mid-1960s by Nancy and Everett “Slim” Kidwell.1 Cal-Nev-Ari, at around 600 acres, includes an airstrip, motel, RV park, mobile home park, convenience store, restaurant, and casino.1 In 2021, Universal Green Technology, owner of the organic mining company Heart of Nature, bought the little outpost for $8 million.1
