The purpose of this paper is to present in brief form, far too brief for the wealth of material available, an account of the history of the town of Elko, Nevada. There has been no attempt to include in these pages all the interesting events which are traditional in the gossip of the town. Every effort has been made to include only such material as can be readily verified either by the memories of those still living who remember the events or, in cases where this has bailed or there has been an evident conflict of stories, by resort to the written records. It is fortunate, indeed, that there are so many still living who were present in the early days, especially since the written records are not so complete as might be desired.

Because of the limitations of space, the history has been limited to the years 1868-1890.
