Nevada is a ceety in Collin Coonty, Texas, United States. The population wis 822 at the 2010 census. First settled in 1835 bi John McMinn Stambaugh an namit McMinn Chapel, the aurie wis settled bi Granville Stinebaugh, who namit it efter Nevada Territory (the local pronunciation, tho, haes the seicont syllable as "vay"). Nevada enjoyed some prosperity efter becomin a stop on the St. Louis Southwestern Railway, an the toun incorporatit in 1889.

On 9 Mey 1927, a hauf-mile wide tornado ripped throu Nevada, leaving 27 dead, 75 injured, an property damage exceedin $1 million. The toun haed a difficult recovery; citizens votit tae unincorporate, an placit the restoration o the commonty in the haunds o the Collin Coonty authorities. Housomeivver, wi the growin mechanisation involvit in agricultur, alang wi the Great Depression, caused the toun tae faw intae stagnation. The railwey later remuivit its tracks frae the aurie.

Recent growthe in Collin Coonty durin the last 25 years haes moderately impruivit life in Nevada. The population haes again reached the hichts o 1927, an the toun reincorporatit in 1988.
