Famed Mexican explorer and merchant who led the first commercial caravan party across the Las Vegas Valley in 1829. Armijo and his party had created a new trade route from New Mexico to Los Angeles, California, and were thus responsible for naming the area "Las Vegas" (Spanish for "The Meadows") after following a tributary up from the Colorado River. This route later became known as the Old Spanish Trail.
