Because Austin Nevada’s silver held out for nearly 20 years, substantial brick buildings were constructed. They included banks, lecture halls, schools, churches and homes. Many of these establishments, like the Stokes Castle, the International Hotel and the Gridley Store are still standing today.
Austin has had a “boom and Bust” economy throughout its rich history and mining comes and goes depending on the economy. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, visitors to Austin Nevada are welcome to enjoy the historic buildings and stroll along its streets.
