The Goldfield High School, dedicated in 1908, is one of the most significant buildings remaining in the Goldfield National Historic District.  Last used in 1953, it has been shuttered and unmaintained for most of the last 60 years.  The Goldfield Historical Society (Society) has recently undertaken the stabilization and restoration of the building, with the intention of utilizing it to interpret the natural and cultural history of Esmeralda County and as a community center to support the cultural and educational needs of the community.
