Who founded Nevada?
Statehood for Nevada was most strongly facilitated by President Abraham Lincoln to add silver riches to the Union during the Civil War. Even before the war, Lincoln had promoted adding Nevada as a free state to strengthen the Union. In a sense, perhaps the Civil War founded the state of Nevada - hence the official Nevada slogan, "The Battle Born State" reflecting how the state was admitted to the Union in 1864 during the peak of the war. Another key influence on Congress for admittance was the Transcontinental Railroad extending across the territory and linking east and west.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) was founded by Joseph Smith, Jr. in upstate New York in 1830. When a handful of Mormons moved to Nevada, …the Church set up a congregation there. In the Mormon church, individuals do not start up their own congregations. When a population of Church members exists in an area, Church headquarters provides them with a building and organizes a congregation there.... so the Mormon Church itself founded the Mormon Church in Nevada, simply because some Mormons moved to Nevada. There are now 320 Mormon congregations in Nevada.
