On a hill above town sits Tonopah’s historic past. Yep, the past itself is sitting on top of the hill. You can actually visit the very place where Tonopah began. And not only Tonopah, but where the last great gold rush in the entire USA took place. It was 1900 when silver was discovered up on this hill. But it wasn’t long before gold was found in nearby Goldfield, Beatty and Death Valley. From 1900 to 1911 the great Nevada Mining Boom was center stage in American financing. Stocks were sold at a furious rate. Investors from all over the country were placing their hard-earned money in stocks like Tonopah Mining Company, Goldfield Consolidated and the Original Bullfrog! Yes! Bullfrog! Crazy names for mines in Nevada’s boom times! Visit where it all happened at Tonopah’s Historic Mining Park in Tonopah, Nevada.
