Lida, Nevada is a small ghost town in Esmeralda County, Nevada, near the border with California. The GNIS classifies it as a populated place. It is located on State Route 266, north of Magruder Mountain.
Like other mining towns in Esmeralda County, its population sharply declined once its mines were exhausted. The site now rests on private property.
