Combination Mill in East Belmont, Nevada

The weather was just lovely yesterday, the sun was shining but it was not hot. It was a perfect time to go out and connect with Mother Nature and with rural Nevada's remarkable ruins and past treasures. My husband and I, together with Adan and Josefina and their children, had a wonderful time!

This mill was built for gold milling when gold mining was still active in Belmont, Nevada in the 1800s. As you can see in one of the photos, there was some kind of a big fire place, maybe they used it to fire up the mill, or, something like that. I find it really very interesting. The mill reminds me of a castle.

Thanks to the models, siblings Adam and Tamara.

Thank you for visiting my site, have a good one!


  1. Belmont was founded on a silver strike in 1865, and the mill (40 stamps) was built to process silver (1867-1868) These are great photos. well worth the drive out there !
