Pinto Nevada History and Photos

PINTO - (1870-1903)
T18N R54E SW1/4 Section 26.  2 miles north of US 50 at a point 65 miles west of Ely. The area was originally called Silverado. By 1871, Pinto had blacksmith shops, boarding houses, a post office, stores, homes and a population of 75.  A $30,000 mill was built in 1872, but shut down in January 1874 because the mine had no deposits really worth mining. Some stone walls can be seen. Smelter ruins are east of US 50 just south of Pinto Summit, Eureka County.
