History
Nevada became part of the USA with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo with Mexico in 1848. Nevada was organized into a territory in 1861 and then became a state in 1864. The state’s motto is Battle Born because Nevada became a state during the Civil War.

Belmont/Manhattan
nevadasilvertrails.com: Manhattan’s closer than you think. From Tonopah, take Highway 6 east, then turn north on State Route 376. Drive about 60 miles, then hang a right on State Route 377. Another dozen miles will put you right on Main Street. In Manhattan, you can sample the life of the old-time prospectors who founded the town in 1850.

Fallon
Fallon is located in the Lahontan Valley, about 60 miles east of Reno, and near the Stillwater Wildlife Refuge, part of the Pacific Flyway and home to hundreds of species of migratory birds. Because of the valley’s high volume of water, the area is often called the “Oasis of Nevada,” and outdoor recreation is abundant in this lush playground.

Lake
Just north of Reno, Nevada sits a desert lake. Named for tufa formations, Lake is the remnant of the ancient Lake Lahontan that formed in the last Ice Age. At that time Lake Lahontan was an inland sea that covered most of the state of Nevada. Today, Lake is part of the National Scenic Byways Program and the only byway in the country located entirely within a tribal reservation.

In 2010, First Lady Michelle Obama designated Lake as Nevada’s first Preserve America Tribal Community

The Lake Paiute Tribes’ Reservation is located thirty five miles northeast of Reno, Nevada in a remote desert area located in the counties of Washoe, Lyon, and Storey. The area of the reservation contains 475,000 acres or 742.2 square miles. Out of this acreage approximately 112,000 acres cover the surface of a terminal desert lake, Lake. Lake is one of the most valuable assets of the Tribe and is entirely enclosed within the boundaries of the Reservation. Lake is approximately 15 miles long and 11 miles wide. At its deepest point Lake measures 350 feet.

Tonopah
The green-energy based visitors center is located in Tonopah. Located halfway between Las Vegas and Reno on U.S. 95, the center is built of recycled materials and runs entirely on power created by solar panels and a wind generator. Inside the center, visitors learn about renewable energy through detailed displays while also watching it in action. The Tonopah Historic Mining Park on the hillside above the town, offers a chance to explore the actual mines that created this mining juggernaut. Tonopah’s Central Nevada Museum contains displays describing not only local mining history but also other cultural and social aspects of the region. Tonopah’s night skies are considered among the best in the country for stargazing.

Winnemucca resides in Humboldt County and is the halfway point between Salt Lake City and San Francisco along Interstate 80 in Cowboy Country. The town has a rich Basque heritage. The town has been occupied since about 1830 when trappers came to the area in search of fur-bearing animals. In 1863 the town was named after Paiute Chief Winnemucca.

Winnemucca is the only town in Nevada named after a Native American
