Ghost Towns, Mines, and More!


The Eureka Tunnel is a small mine near Eureka, NV. It had two periods of production. The first was between 1881 and 1901. The second, lesser, period was from 1917 to 1923. At that time it may have been operated by the Eureka-Croesus mining company, but I haven’t been able to confirm this.


These stone ruins are located about a quarter mile down the canyon from the Eureka Tunnel. I have been unable to find out any information about this structure. It doesn’t appear to be associated with any specific mine. It’s closer to the Eureka Tunnel than anything else, so I’m including it here.
