A HISTORY OF WHITE PINE COUNTY, NEVADA
In 1869, twelve counties existed in Nevada. These counties were: Elko, Esmeralda, Humboldt, Ormsby, Washoe, Storey, Douglas, Lincoln, Lyon, Churchill, Nye, and Lander. An act of the Legislature created White Pine County from part of Lander County and located the new county seat at the townsite of Hamilton on April 1, 1869.
The town of Hamilton suffered two mysterious fires in the middle 1880's
Ely became the county seat.
How Ely got it's name....maybe.
