Things To Do

Tonopah Historic Mining Park

The Tonopah Historic Mining Park is located on the site of the original mining claims that started the rush to Tonopah, making it “Queen of the Silver Camps”.  Jim and Belle Butler’s strike in 1900 brought the United States into the 20th Century, and many of the mining processing techniques developed during that time are still being used today.

The Central Nevada Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the history of Nye & Esmeralda counties through our displays and research library made available to the public at the Central Nevada Museum in Tonopah, Nevada.  Our rich history, which includes mining, ranching, and life in the Wild West is presented in our small, but well applauded museum.
