This piece is part of a series of articles on Elko, Nevada from 1868 - 1968, compiled by the University of Nevada, the Reno Historical Institute and the Nevada Historical Society.
Nevada includes the city of Elko, Nevada, a small town in the eastern part of the state of Nevada. Nevada has a population of about 1,000 people, most of them from the Reno area, but also from Las Vegas, Reno-Sparks and Reno, Nev., as well as other towns and villages in and around the Nevada Valley.
A partial census existed in Nevada from 1862 to 1863, and a complete census was in place from 1875. The inhabitants of the South - eastern Nevada in 1870 - were listed in the disputed Nevada boundaries, but there were no complete census records until the 18th century. For a link to the index of the federal census, see Nevada Census, or you can buy a copy of the district where the event took place.
The Family History Library does not have a copy of Nevada tax records from June 2013. Many Elko County newspapers can be found in the Elk County Library, check out the Library of Nevada's Library and Archives in Las Vegas, or view obituaries.

Elko's economy is based on gold mining, with additional jobs created by livestock farming, tourism and the casino industry. The state of Nevada produces more gold than any of the four countries, and most of that gold in Nevada is mined in Elko.
The Great Basin Community College, which opened in 1967, attracts students from many counties and several states. It is the only public community college in the state of Nevada serving most of North and Central Nepal and is one of the largest community colleges in North America.
The museum is also known for its art exhibitions, including a traveling exhibition of works by artists from around the world, which is by far the most visited art exhibition in the country. Just a few blocks north of the museum is the Elko Museum of Art, which hosts a variety of events All year round - with concerts, art exhibitions, lectures and other educational activities for children and adults.
Hunter S. Thompson joked that the federal government owns 90% of the land in Elko, and most of that land is in Jarbidge Wilderness, the largest wilderness area in Nevada and the second largest in North America. In the north, it is the least visited wilderness area of all U.S. wilderness areas, but it offers easy access to the wilderness.
After Elko served as a mining town, it fell into disrepair in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when the beef and wool economy descended into chaos. The state legislature passed it after the population fell to less than 1,000, and the Nevada legislature dismantled Lander County as new towns emerged to open up new mining areas in the north and east. By the mid-19th century, Elko County had fallen to fourth place in population, surpassed by the fast-growing railroad town of Reno and surrounding Washoe County. In the early 1930s, the mining area was legalized by the Nevada Legislature, with the state's first public school system, while El Koos served as one of the largest public schools in North America.
Elko's economy is still healthy, and the city still serves as a business hub for much of northeastern Nevada. The city's location has been improved by the construction of the Elko Hotel and Casino, the largest hotel and casino in the state of Nevada, and the opening of a new hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. To ensure that we have the ideal solution for selling and renting our services to the people who are our greatest asset, we have partnered with a number of local hotels, restaurants, bars, hotels and other businesses.
Elko is supervised by the Elko County Sheriff's Office, the Nevada Department of Public Health and Human Services and the U.S. Army.
Few cities have adapted as quickly to growth, change and popularity as Elko. The population doubled in the 1980 "s, when it numbered 1.5 million, from less than 1,000 in 1950. That is what made the city so attractive to the US Army and military, and made it a prime location for minerals - rich and growing rapidly.
The old California Trail, followed by the Central Pacific Railroad, was bypassed far north. Growth came mainly from the nearby gold mines, which made Elko one of the largest gold production areas in the United States.
