Wendover USA has a unique, fasinating past. The first transcontinental telephone line was linked as Wendover in 1914. Ab Jenkins' Mormon Meteor began a series of land speed records set on the Bonneville Salt Flats. World War II bombers shook the ground as they roared above Wendover Bombing and Gunnery Range on their practice runs. The 509th and the Enola Gay made secret preparations for the war-ending atomic bomb mission to Japan. The desert crossings in the 1840's of the Donner-Reed party adds further historic intrigue to the history. Will modern history answer the question: Is the Nevada state line to be shifted east to incorporate two divided towns into one Silver State community?
