Eureka County

Hello, and welcome to our web site. My name is Julie, and I am a junior at Downers Grove North. I am a U.S. History student in Downers Grove Il, a west suburb of Chicago. I write for my school paper, I participate in snowball, and I am also helping to start a new program called Campus Life. I really like deep thoughts and quotes. So I going to leave this quote on this site, because it is one of my favorite ones, " Failure is life's only true success, for without it, no one could realize all they have accomplished." Words to live by. =) If you continue to read my web site, you will have the chance to learn about Eureka Nevada. A small yet colorful county that very few people have had the pleasure to hear about. Thanks for visiting our site, and I hope you enjoy it!

Eureka County, is now rather small containing only one high school, and two grade schools. The population has decreased significantly since most of the valuable natural resources have been diminished.


In 1867, when a miner stuck gold, and indirectly gave Eureka County a name. Eureka County Nevada is located on highway 50. Eureka was blessed with a mild winter, and a warm summer, making it the perfect area for miners.

Imagine, sliver and gold as far as the eye can see. Well, maybe not as far as the eye can see. When settlers eventually moved out West, they found what will become some of the most valuable natural resources that existed. This is what the people of Eureka ending up making a living off of.

Politics in Nevada are much like politics from all over the place. Most of the information I found was related to the senators, and house members. Please click to get the information.
