Tonopah Historic Mining Park

Top choice in Southern Nevada

This niche site encompasses areas that belonged to four of Tonopah's original mining companies, spread out over 100 acres. Walking tours come highly recommended and might include the exploration of an underground tunnel or glimpses into abandoned silver-mine shafts. Not for the claustrophobic.
