Only in Ely
Located right in the Heart of the Golden West:
White Pine County and the City Of Ely are located in east, central Nevada, at the crossroads of U.S. Highways 50, 93 and 6. Ely was founded in the 1870's as a trading post called Murry Station, but would become one of the country's major copper mining regions. 1906 marked the arrival of the Nevada Northern Railway. This new railroad was needed for development of the copper industry and was instrumental in the economic growth of Ely, McGill and Ruth. Now, the well-preserved short-line railway draws visitors from all over the world to ride on its queens of steam and historic diesel engines.
Ely is the regional center for commerce and business for much of Eastern Nevada and a mecca for tourists visiting Nevada's Scenic Wonderland - Great Basin National Park, Cave Lake State Park and Ward Charcoal Ovens State Historic Park.
