Ely, Nevada is a four season mountain town with a population of close to 5000 people
Sitting at the eastern edge of “Nevada’s Loneliest Highway,” Ely is a remote mountain town where history, art, and outdoor adventure thrive. Ely was founded in the 1870’s as a stage coach stop and trading post called Murry Station, but would become one of the country’s major copper mining regions. 1906 marked the arrival of the Nevada Northern Railway. Now, this well-preserved short-line railway draws visitors from all over the world to ride on its queens of steam and historic diesel engines. Murals, art galleries, and a sculpture garden decorate the historic downtown while rugged mountains rise up in all directions with amazing year round recreation opportunities in places like Great Basin National Park, Cave Lake State Park, Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park, and Ward Mountain Recreation Area.
