The Mineral County Courthouse, also known as the 1883 Esmeralda County Courthouse and the Old Mineral County Courthouse, is an historic county courthouse building located at 551 C Street in Hawthorne, Mineral County, Nevada. Built in 1883 at the Esmeralda County Courthouse, it served as such until 1907 when the county seat was moved to Goldfield. In 1911 when Mineral County was created, it became the first Mineral County Courthouse, and served until 1970, when a new Courthouse was constructed. It is the only building in Nevada to have served as the courthouse of two different counties. [2] On January 29, 1982 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1] As of 2008 (photo), it was fenced off and in disrepair.
