eureka opera house
I've mentioned it a few times...we love to travel. Some of our best trips have been not too far from home, and many are based upon exploring historical places. Ghost-towns are a favorite for us and especially nice if there are surviving structures to photograph!

A mid-19th century lead and silver mining center, Eureka is one of Nevada's best-preserved mining camps with dozen of historical sites. The Eureka Opera House was built in 1880 and is now used as a convention center and cultural art center. The original Eureka Courthouse, built in 1879, is still in use, and the Eureka Sentinel Museum and local cemeteries are both points of tourist interest.
