ELY NEVADA, established in the 1870s as a stagecoach station and post office, is now the White Pine County seat. Copper mining was the impetus for the development of Ely Nevada. The early 1900’s saw the advent of successful copper mining operations. Because Ely Nevada is situated at the junction of Highway 50 and U.S. 93, it has grown to become the largest city in eastern Nevada. Ely Nevada is the hub for outdoor recreation and historic sites.

Ely’s greatest attraction to visitors, apart from comfortable lodgings, good food and magnificent natural surroundings, is the restored Nevada Northern Railway’s Ghost Train. Located in Ely Nevada, the historic Nevada Northern Railway Museum is housed in the former East Ely Railroad Depot. The Nevada Northern Railway Museum is open year-round, with steam and diesel-powered train rides, including dinner trains, throughout the year on select dates. Unique programs include: Be the Engineer, Ride with the Engineer, February Photo Shoots, Railroad Reality Weeks and Caboose Overnights. Summertime kids ride free Mondays through Thursdays. Private charters and group rates are available. Call 866-40-STEAM (866-407-8326) or 775-289-2085 for more information or visit the website at www.nnry.com.

Also in Ely Nevada is the White Pine Public Museum featuring historic photographs, Native American artifacts, mining equipment, and displays illustrate the rich mining history of the region. 2000 Aultman Street, Ely Nevada. Call 1-800-HY6-9350 (800-496-9350) for more information.
