Old Lander Co. Courthouse

Lander County’s courthouse moved around with the population. The first was in Jacobsville. But then a newly-discovered vein of silver in Austin prompted the county to move its seat to Austin.


Humboldt Co. Courthouse

Humboldt County moved its county seat from Unionville to Winnemucca in 1873. In 1874 the first courthouse was constructed. It was destroyed by fire in 1918, and the present structure was built.


Esmeralda Co. Courthouse

Goldfield's Esmeralda County Courthouse opened for business in 1908. Esmeralda County stretches for some 3588 sq. miles, but contains fewer than 1262 people (2006).


Elko Co. Courthouse

The original Elko County Courthouse was built in 1869 for $20,000. The present building was built in 1910 and sits on the site of its predecessor.


Pershing Co. Courthouse

A rivalry with neighboring Humboldt County prompted the commissioners of Pershing County to plan a courthouse in Lovelock that would put that of their northern neighbor to shame.


Storey Co. Courthouse

The courthouse opened in 1877. Electrification during the Great Depression left Art Deco style fixtures hanging from the high ceiling.


Eureka Co. Courthouse

Eureka County built its courthouse in 1879. The courtroom includes original pressed tin ceiling and wood features. An nook for the court clerk in front of the judge's bench is noteworthy.
