Nevada State Railroad Museum

To build Boulder Dam, the Union Pacific Boulder City branch went into service in February 1931. The Union Pacific hauled freight until 1985 when the right of way was given to the State of Nevada to preserve it. The Nevada State Railroad Museum is at the end of the line.

Central Nevada Museum

The Central Nevada Museum occupies a unique place in the retelling of the annals of the West. The famous, not so famous, and infamous, all left their mark in central Nevada: film mogul and industrial magnate, Howard Hughes; prizefighting promoter, George “Tex” Rickard (who built Madison Square Garden); the founder of United Parcel Service (UPS), […]

Ely Renaissance Village

The Geraghty property was six small antiquated houses overgrown and untended when the Ely Renaissance Society bought it and began its transformation into the intriguing and inviting Renaissance Village in northwestern Ely.
