The George A. Bartlett House, also known as the Old Knights of Columbus Hall, is a Shingle style house in Tonopah, Nevada, United States. The Shingle style is more commonly found in the northeastern United States, and is almost unknown in Nevada. The house stands on a height on Mount Brougher overlooking the town. The house was built by George A. Bartlett, later a U.S. Congressman, who lost the house in the Panic of 1907. The shingled house is set on a rubblestone foundation and features an asymmetrical plan, typical of the style. The house was used as a Knights of Columbus Hall, then abandoned.[2] Renovation began in 2008 to restore the house for use as a bed and breakfast.[3]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
