Historic Belmont, Nevada. Circa 1866
Located in the center of Belmont, comprised of several late 1800's businesses and county buildings including the Combinantion Mining office, Belmont Courier Newspaper office, original courthouse, jail, and sheriffs office, lodging house, mercantile, and even the site of a church. Belmont today has about a dozen full time residents, and is very remote, with spotty cell service, no tv or radio, completely off grid and self sustaining. This building complex has changed hands many times over the past 150 years including Indian Maggie and Rose Walters. The Parlor was once a steak house, the old Courier was a saloon for many years, and the main building a bed and breakfast. Now a private venture to help restore and preserve this Nevada historical treasure, and National Historic Distric since 1971, we are looking for those of the adventurous type to come stay with us while volunteering your skills to contribute to this effort.
