It was a long distance and a far cry from Vermont when J.W. Long journeyed from his home state to settle in White County, Nevada, in 1878. After discovering gold, however, he set up a camp in Ely, marking the start of Ely’s history as a gold and copper mining town, and with mining came the railroad. Most likely, copper miners once lived in this c.1907 hipped roof fixer upper bungalow.
Although Ely (pop. 4,255) is a copper boom town still today, the railroad acts only as a preserved heritage railway known as the Ghost Train of Old Ely.
Ely has a semi-arid climate with extreme day-night temperature differences year-round. The town’s nighttime temps account for it being counted as one of the coldest places in the contiguous United States, with an average of 217 nights per year with a minimum temperature of 32 °F or less. Frosts have been recorded in every month of the year, even July. Elevation, dry air, clear skies and location in a valley account for its climate.
Great investment opportunity! 1,450 sq. ft. fixer upper in fair condition. 23X15 living room with fireplace. Formal dining room, spacious bedrooms and early 1900’s character give this home tons of potential. Home is being sold AS-IS.
