National Register of Historic Places in Nye County
W. A. Sawle, the local Justice of the Peace, built this house for himself in 1904.
The frame house is a blend of late Victorian and Colonial Revival styles. It has a T-shape and features a verandah with wooden jig-cut bracketing along the top.
While living here, Sawle invested in local mining and became Recorder and Auditor of Nye County.
He fathered the first baby born in Tonopah.
