Goldfield is nearly halfway between Reno and Las Vegas on Highway 95 through Nevada. In 1908 it was the largest city in Nevada with more than 20,000 people. Today the population is only around 300 hearty souls. In the center of town is a magnificent stone structure completed in 1908, the County Courthouse, which is still in use. Across the street is the fire station, built in 1907.
