Nelson Ghost Town

The town was the site of one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada and one of the biggest mining booms in state history. The community called Nelson was named for Charles Nelson, a camp leader who was slain in his home, along with four other people, in 1897 by the renegade Indian, Avote

AWESOME tour!

We had a blast! Great trail terrain, photo opportunities, and nature/wildlife sightings, and our tour guide Sherman was awesome! The gold mine tour was very interesting and a great way to cool off with natural air conditioning! Compared to my other Vegas excursions, Eldorado Canyon was by far the best BANG FOR MY BUCK$! The equipment was also clean and smelled great, which is typical with used helmets and equipment. It made me feel safer, in spite of the COVID 19 pandemic. Thanks again!
