The 1907 Goldfield High School Restoration Project

The Goldfield High School, located on the corner of Euclid and Ramsey, is one of the most significant buildings remaining in the Goldfield National Historic District.

In 2008, the building and land were donated to a Nevada non-profit corporation for the benefit of the people of Goldfield and Esmeralda County.   At this time, the Goldfield Historical Society voted to undertake the stabilization and restoration of this grand old building with the help of grants, fundraisers and donations from people like you.

The Society’s intent is to restore the building to its former glory.  The plan is to utilize the building to interpret the natural and cultural history of Esmeralda County as well as a future venue for special events.   Read about its history and the timeline of our ongoing  struggle to save the building.

…that  the Goldfield High School colors were Orange & Black?

…that the school paper was called the Joshua Palm?
