The Tonapah Extension Mining Company Power Building is a historic power plant located on Main Street in Tonopah, Nevada. The building was constructed by 1920 by the Tonopah Extension Mining Company, possibly as a replacement for a 1909 plant. The plant was built with fired brick, an unusual construction material in the area. It is the only surviving building from the Tonopah Extension Mine, a major Tonopah mine which opened in 1903.[2]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 20, 1982.[1]
