Tonopah is located about halfway between Reno and Las Vegas. Tonopah is a perfect place to stay while enjoying central Nevada's recreational activities including rock hunting, hiking, bird watching, wildlife viewing, mountain biking, off roading and hunting.

Because it's so far from the bright lights of any major city, Tonopah's night skies are considered among the best in the country for stargazing.

Tour our Historic Mining Park & visit the Central Nevada Museum. Shop in unique stores, discover local artists & even mine for turquoise!  Go off-roading or visit nearby ghost towns.

Mining Park Foundation Undertakes Major Head Frame Restoration Project

In operation from 1902 to 1948, the Silver Top Head Frame is (pictured left) maintained in a state of arrested decay and features one of three complete hoisting works on the park property.

The restored mine collar allowed visitors to take a view down the lighted 1200 foot shaft. The Silver Top’s failure of the front foundation has caused the head frame to rotate and the cage rails are broken.



The Structural trusses have pulled loose from the front head frame legs. The front feet have dropped and are pulling away from the rear feet... more on the Tonopah Historic Mining Parks fall newsletter "Tailings" to learn more about this vast restoration, and what you can do to help.
