Mining Park

113 acres of mining history!  See the original mines, equipment, and artifacts that built Tonopah – the Queen of the Silver Camps.  The Mining Park is filled with dramatic views, 500ft drops, and illuminated mineshafts.

Mizpah Hotel and Historic Downtown

The Mizpah Hotel was built in 1907 and has been restored to its former grandeur. You might meet one of their resident ghosts, the Lady in Red!  The Mizpah is part of Tonopah’s historic downtown – take a walk and visit the historic buildings, bars, unique shops, and restaurants.

Award Winning Stargazing

Tonopah was rated the #1 Stargazing Destination in America by USA Today.  With some of the darkest night skies in the nation, you can see over 7,000 stars, including the Milky Way.  Just look up!  No telescope necessary!

Today, we honor Belle Butler, wife of Jim Butler. Belle was born on April 8, 1861 and died on June 23, 1922. While her husband is always credited as the founding father of Tonopah and celebrated each Memorial Day weekend during Jim, it was Belle who made sure that Jim would finally stake his claims after delaying the effort. Belle staked the Mizpah claim, the richest of all the Butler claims. You can visit the claim at the Tonopah.
