    Goldfield High School

    Goldfield High SChool

    The school was built in 1907 in response to the burgeoning population that resulted from the gold and silver boom that began in 1902. Since the boom in Goldfield declined by 1910, and few modifications were needed, the large stone and brick school retains a high degree of integrity, although its condition has deteriorated severely. The Goldfield High School is currently privately owned. It suffers from structural instability and severe deferred maintenance. Lack of funding prevents preservation efforts and the building is at risk of collapse.

    US 95, 25 miles south of Tonopah and 182 miles northwest of Las Vegas.

    Truckers and cars just pass through without realizing the historic nature of Goldfield. Stop and walk through the Courthouse with displays, poems, old typewriters and desks. Look on the walls at old pictures of mining life and the town's heyday.

    Telegraph Building

    The building was one of a few spared by a fire that destroyed 53 blocks of the downtown area in 1923. Today, it is one of the few unspoiled examples of the work of the craftsmen of the early 1900 era
