Newark Nevada History and Photos

NEWARK - (1867-ca 1910)
T19N R56E SW1/4 Section 4.  Newark was located by Stephen and John Beard of Austin. They had discovered silver on the east flank of the Diamond Mountains in 1866. The Centenary Co., owned by members of the Methodist Church, set up a 20-stamp mill. The profits from this mill were used  to build a new church in Austin.  Limited mining activity took place over the years due to shallow ore deposits. A mill foundation remains.
