Tonopah

Here’s a real Nevada town with a different kind of nightlife. Six thousand feet high in the San Antonio Mountains, Tonopah enjoys the darkest nighttime skies in the nation – which means the best stargazing in the country.

Located halfway between Reno and Las Vegas at U.S. 95 and U.S. 6, Tonopah offers plenty of adventure by day, too. Off-roading, geocaching, hiking, mountain biking, birdwatching, wildlife watching, hunting and rock hounding are all popular diversions.

This bustling town of 2,500 first began to boom when Jim Butler and his wandering burro first discovered silver in the area. Today, you can re-live the town’s rich mining history at the Tonopah Historic Mining Park and the Central Nevada Museum.

Attractions

Historic Mizpah Hotel

The Mizpah Hotel was built in 1907, shortly after the town of Tonopah was founded. Once the tallest building in the state, the hotel quickly became the heart of town providing lodging, libations and entertainment to fuel the great Nevada silver rush.

After more than one hundred years of ups and downs, transfers of ownership and natural calamities, Fred and Nancy Cline purchased the Mizpah in early 2011, and are planning to open to the public in August of 2011.

Like most of their endeavors, the Mizpah Hotel has special meaning for the Clines. Nancy’s great uncle was pioneer Harry Ramsey, a miner by trade. He came to Tonopah in 1900 to seek a future in silver and was later joined in 1904 by his sister Emma, Nancy’s grandmother. Emma eventually moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where she met and married Nancy’s grandfather, George Bunting, a sea captain for Standard Oil.

Today, the Clines are thankful to be a part of the revitalization of Tonopah—Nancy’s ancestral hometown and the rebirth of the Mizpah.
