Nevada Historic Markers in Eureka County: Tannehill Cabin
Nevada Historical Marker 222
US Route 50 and Tan Hill Road
South of Eureka
The Tannehill brothers built this cabin for a residence in 1864 and lived here about a year before selling their mining interests to a New York Company in 1866. The cabin subsequently went through a number of owners, including the firm of Nathan & Harrison, one of the area's first mercantile establishments in the late 1880's.
Fires, floods and the rvages of time have spared the structure and local residents take a jusifiable pride in the fact that they have been able to save it.
