- Ghost Towns
Approx. 35 minutes east of Ely, NV, Hamilton is the former county seat for White Pine County and was, during it's boom, the richest city in America. What used to be a thriving mining community of roughly 40K people complete with banks, bars, opera houses, and upscale establishments is now one the most intact ghost towns in Nevada. A ten mile drive on a dirt road through the mountains brings you to the Hamilton Grave yard dating back to the late 1800s then into the cross roads of the town where the remaining buildings are scattered throughout the hill sides. No buildings remain fully in tact but many partial structures remain. Many historic sites surround the area. common wildlife sightings includes mule deer, wild horses, cattle, sage grouse. One of our favorite areas in the county!
