Nevada Rock Art Geocaching Historical Markers

Historical Marker #222

Located along U.S. Highway 50 on the south edge of Eureka, Nevada.

Tannehill Cabin
One of Eureka's First Houses

The Tannehill brothers built this cabin for a residence in 1864 and lived here about a year before selling their mining interest to a New York company in 1866. The cabin subsequently went through a number of owners, including the firm of Nathan & Harrison, one of the area's first mercantile establishments in the late 1860's.

Fires, floods and the ravages of time have spared the structure and local residents take a justifiable pride in the fact that they have been able to save it.

Notes on this marker:

I like Eureka, it's a pretty town. Unfortunately I've not have much time to stop and explore.
