Lida, Nevada is a small ghost town in Esmeralda County, Nevada, near the border with California. The GNIS classifies it as a populated place.[1] It is located on State Route 266, north of Magruder Mountain.

The first settlement at Lida was made in 1871.[2] A post office was in operation at Lida between 1873 and 1932.[3]

Like other mining towns in Esmeralda County, its population sharply declined once the mines were exhausted. The site now rests on private property.
