Welcome to North Nevada!

Known as the Crossroads of the West, North Nevada was once home to a major emigrant route that brought explorers through the area. In the mid 1900s, this Nevada region exploded in growth, as some of the world's largest gold deposits were found near Carlin. Large open-pit gold mines continue to produce large quantities of gold and some, such as the Newmont Gold Company in Elko, will arrange tours to teach people about current gold extracting methods. The history of Northern Nevada thrives in the municipal centers of Winnemucca, Elko and Battle Mountain. Visitors enjoy strolling through downtown Winnemucca, where historic buildings are displayed as restaurants, pubs and boutique shops. For history buffs, the Trail of the 49ers Interpretive Center in Battle Mountain and the Northeastern Nevada Museum are an opportune place to learn about the region's rich heritage. Outdoor enthusiasts can head to the Wild Horse Recreation Area in Elko, where camping, fishing and boating are found.
