Approaching our destination. If the reader chooses to visit these charcoal kilns prepare for a slalom like drive between the trees.A lost treasure may still be hidden near the kilns.
A frozen marsh near the ruins of McCann Station.
"Grace McClosky was born in Ireland in 1838 and came to America in 1855. She arrived in Nevada first living in Virginia City for a short time and then in 1866 moving to Belmont following the mineral strike. While there she married Bernard McCann and had five children. The family relocated to Tybo where two more children were born. Bernard died there in 1879. Grace ran a boarding house for some time in Tybo after her husband past away. Later Grace went over the summit to purchase a Stage Station between Tybo and Belmont where she would run a toll road for several years." - by Robert Wynn
Mizpah Hotel, built in 1907. An excellent location to usher in 2012. Our stay at the Mizpah was a wonderful experience. The room was comfortable with a flat screen television, wifi and more than a hint of history. We heartily recommend that anyone passing through Tonopah spend the night at this elegant hostelry. If any additional encouragement is required; dining at either of the hotel's two restaurants is also a wonderful experience.
