This was the communications center of Goldfield from 1906 until 1963. From 1904 to 1920, Goldfield boomed sa a gold producing center. It was the largest (20,000+) city in Nevada during that period, having four railroads and other modern conveniences. The building was one of a few spared by a fire that destroyed 53 blocks of the downtown area in 1923. Today, it is one of the few unspoiled examples of the work of the craftsmen of the early 1900 era, and an example of the business life in the Tonopah-Goldfield area from the years when the mines were producing millions and bringing new prosperity to the state of Nevada.
