"There's no missing this one. The Eureka Courthouse is so stately, it should mandate its magnetic field. By far ... the largest building in central Nevada. Now where's the tour?" -- Journal Entry, October 2007

Exact Description:
Built in 1879-80, of locally fired brick and of sandstone quarried nearby, the Eureka County Courthouse remains a fine example of boom town Victorian opulence. This relic, scene of many famous trials, lives on in reflected glory of the days when Eureka was the first important lead-silver district in the United States.
