The town was the site of one of the first major gold strikes in Nevada and one of the biggest mining booms in state history. The community called Nelson was named for Charles Nelson, a camp leader who was slain in his home, along with four other people, in 1897 by the renegade Indian, Avote

Our tour guide near the end of April was Alisha and the entire trip was amazing all the way through! I went with family and none of us had ever rode ATV's/UTV's before (just golf carts) so at first I didn't know what to expect through the desert landscape, but after riding for 30 seconds it was easy to get the hang of and riding through the desert landscape/mountains and then hearing the history through the goldmine was awesome! Highly recommended for something different to do especially for the price and how long this lasts. We had interactions with the two tour guides, our main one being Alisha and Sherman was also there, they were both really fun to be around and listen to.

A true experience out in the desert and gold mines in the old west

The weather was perfect for the days adventure. We were picked up by the tour guide at our hotel at 9:00 am. After a short ride out into the desert we stopped at the el dorado gold mine where theres a very unique general store and a wide variety of things to see. We start with the Atv ride in our group we had 8 single quads and 4 razor two seater UTV. We chose the two seater based on a previous excursion in October. Its a tour so not a lot of fast runs but it was fun. The views were incredible. We made a stop at a smaller mine attraction that had been abandoned due to thieves but the structure is straight out of a Hollywood film set . Lunch was catered. You order in advance. The barn where you eat is difficult to describe but lets just say theres an old cannon there. Seating is limited. The mine tour was memorable. You walk in a well lit mine and your guide explains in detail how things were done. Gives you perspective on the comforts we enjoy today. I recommend this tour for those who dont mind wearing a helmet, goggles and gloves. Driving an ATV over moderate terrain and getting very dusty. Two thumbs up.
