Eureka Historic District is a historic district in Eureka, Nevada, United States, that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]


Of the many mining boomtowns in Nevada, Eureka is one of the best preserved, primarily due to the gradual decline of mining in the area, with the last mine in the area closing in 1970. "The very gradual decline in the towns fortunes is primarily responsible for the unusual state of preservation of the town. There was always just a little money coming in to keep things in repairs but not enough money to tear down the old buildings and replace them with new ones."[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1][2] It is also Nevada Historical Marker number 11.[3]
