Welcome to Esmeralda County

Welcome to Esmeralda County, Nevada       





Esmeralda County, Nevada is the home to many historic sites, mining communities, ghost towns and a lush farming community.  Located essentially half way between Las Vegas and Reno on Highway 95, it is surrounded by scenic mesas, rugged mountain wilderness and vast open basins.   Esmeralda County offers a variety of spectacular scenery, a comfortable lifestyle, outstanding recreational activities as well as unlimited business opportunities.  

There are three main communities within Esmeralda County.  Goldfield, the county seat and largest town in Esmeralda County.  Some may say, it is in fact a "gold field" of opportunity for anyone seeking a small, close knit community surrounded with rich mines and economic opportunities.  Silver Peak is home to a large lithium production plant as well as a gold mine and offers excellent, well paid positions.  Silver Peak is a very small community located minutes from natural hot springs, surrounded by scenic piney mountains and unforgiving desert landscapes.  Dyer in Fish Lake Valley is a hidden oasis of rich farm land with the White Mountains to the West and Silver Peak Range to the East.  Many call Dyer and the surrounding valley their retirement home, but the farms and ranches are still most prevalent and a strong economic and cultural influence.

  • Unlimited rural expanses and outstanding recreational opportunities
