Come to Ely and plan to spend a few extra days to look around the unique and historical area. There are many things of historical interest in White Pine County. Ely is the county seat of White Pine County. Many of the sites are within a few miles of Ely.
Check the other pages for sites of interest in White Pine County and plan to spend a day or two to see a few of the historical and fun places in the area. There is a real running Steam engine that takes you on a ride. You can experience just what it was like riding in a train 100 years ago. You can see where they made the charcoal for getting the silver out of the dirt and rocks. You can visit a buffalo ranch and see living buffalo then visit the trading post and have a buffalo burger made from real buffalo meat. Just a few of the interesting and historical places in the Ely area.
