Situated 103 miles north of Elko, off of Mountain City Highway (225), Jarbridge is the site of the last stagecoach robbery in 1916.  Gold was discovered near Jarbidge in 1909, making it the site of one of the last gold rushes in the Old West.  Its population swelled to near 2000 in 1911, but afterwards began a slow decline when the mining facilities were largely cannibalized for the war effort during World War I.  Mining operations ceased completely in 1932. However, in 2013 permits for the removal of the gold were re-issued and the mine reopened.  “Jarbidge” is a name derived from the Shoshone language meaning “devil”.  Natives believed the nearby hills were haunted.
