We passed through Ely this last Monday on our way home to Pocatello, Idaho. What a beautiful area you have, and the air smelled vibrant of evergreens. Keep the small town flavor as long as you can, there's few of you left out there. Nice website too!

Greetings from Australia. I was born in East Ely in 1947 and lived in Ruth and East Ely until 1962 when we moved to California. I can remember the houses at the old town site at old Ruth being moved to East Ely in 1957.

We have lived in Australia for the past 19 years and visited Ely about 5 year ago on a visit back to America. Despite me being overseas for more than half my life, I have never got over misssing Ely.

Been through Ely before, lived in NV for 2 years in the 60's, Stead AFB. Likely stop in with son to "drive" diesel engine, a great opportunity. Several years ago I "peeked" through rail site and you must have done much work. I enjoy NV but am discouraged at the political tilt to Las Vegas! May plan next year to put in for elk hunt in this area.

Hi there! I was born in Henderson, and now live in Boston. I came here through some links from the Long Now Foundation. I've only been to Ely a few times. Once, for a Nevada State Press Association conference (1993?) and once as part of the Joe Neal 1998 campaign for governor. I loved it both times. Maybe some day I'll retire there.

Hi, My great-grandfather, James P. McOmie, was the postmaster of Ely from around 1897-1901. He apparently moved the McOmie-McGill house from Taylor to Ely in 1888. Do you know if this house is still standing? My father is 83 and I thought it might be interesting to take a trip to Ely to see his grandfather's old stomping grounds.

Hello To All!!
My name is Donna (Miller) Vasi. My family and myself use to visit Ely every year as I was growing up. My mother's best friend was Mary Zehr. Her son Robert Zehr was my boyfriend for years. Ely has always held a special place in my heart. The park downtown, with the creek running next to me. The friendliness of everyone. Now over 50 I haven't forgot those wonderful memories. Thank-you to the Zehr family and Ely for making such Ely, Nevada a very important part of my past. I'll be visiting Ely soon and hope to see old friends....and scenery.

Your website is wonderful. Its very informative and easy to follow. Thanks so much. email: donnavasi@yahoo.com

The website on Ely is great and easy to view. I was born in Ely and we left Ely in April 1962 right after my father (Ben Sanchez) was killed on a job accident with the Kennecot Corp. I was 7 years at the time; we moved to Cheyenne,WY. I have not been back to Ely,but now that I am retired, I found the time to check your website and may visit your beautiful part of the country.Thank you for the memories.

Hi Ely!
I am a Social Work student at UNLV here in Las Vegas. I am also a single mom to a wonderful 7 year old little boy. As soon as I graduate I hope to move to Ely. From what I have read about the city it is a wonderful small town. I am originally from Norway but lived most my life in Seattle. This Las Vegas life style is awful and I dream of living in a much nicer town soon. I have a little over a year to go so I hope to meet the town nice residents soon:)

I met my husband in Ely in 1975. He was playing in a band at the Hotel Nevada and I was living in Ely at the time. We married in 1976 and live in a suburb of Los Angeles today.

I am a writer and have often thought how great it would be to return to Ely to write an article from a romantic point-of-view. It certainly was a romantic place for us. We speak of the town's simplicity and charm, and fondly recall walks downtown in the cold November air.

Thanks for the memories...

I LOVE ELY!! Ever since I was a young kid we always passed through Ely and stayed the night, sometimes in Hotel Nevada or The Jailhouse or sometimes just Motel 6. I always wanted to stay more than just one night like we usually did but I wasent the one driving or paying. I havent been through since summer 2001 but I plan on coming through with my wife in 2006 sometime. I like the small town ambiance. Last time in Ely my wife and I attended Mass at the small catholic church right by the Hotel Nevada and the people were very friendly. Although we have travelled all over even to such facinating cities such as Paris and Madrid, Ely still retains a special place in my heart as somewhere where you can get back to the quiet life. Thanks and See You Soon!! Sean Richmond. Houston TX

I have been exploring Nevada for many years and, without question, the Ely area is the one of the most interesting in all of Nevada. Wheeler Peak and the Great Basin Park rival anything in the west -- and the greatest thing is that there is virtually never a crowd. Ely is a great place to stop -- I think the author, Stephen King spent time there and probably based one of his novels in the area (Misery??). The Nevada Hotel (an historic landmark) and the Jailhouse are both fine bedtime places suitable for all tastes and are located in the central area of the city. I shall forever be a fan of Ely. It can be cold in the winter season but that just adds to the charm.

We came through Ely last summer and saw posters about an off road event.  At that time we were unable to return to participate.  We would like to receive more information on it.  All I know is that is is held during the summer and is put on by the White Pine 4 Wheelers.  We recently went through Ely again and stopped by the C of C office to get information but you apparently were closed for lunch.  Please contact us with information on the event or have someone from the club contact us.

This is a response to Dave Bunge in the previous e-mail. I apologize for not including a map of White Pine County with this site. We used to have one but it was unintentionally omitted in the last re-design. You can find a good map to the Nevada Northern Railway on msn.com at the following exact address: http://mappoint.msn.com/(sixukh2wellzzo45ggr1viuu)/map.aspx?L=USA&C=39.25896%2c-114.86895&A=7.16667&P=|39.25896%2c-114.86895|1|1100+Avenue+A%2c+Ely%2c+NV+89301|L1|  You can zoom in and out on this map as necessary. I'll work on getting this posted on the site ASAP. We look forward to your visit to our community. Sincerely, Kristi Fillman. Web Manager.

2/12/2005 Ron Stout SeaTac,Washington I started travelling to Ely in 1949 to visit my cousins the Grows.Back then ranching and mining were going strong and Ely,Mc Gill,Ruth,and the surrounding area were prosperous.I got to know some excellent people in and around Ely like the Echeverry family,the Henroids, and coach Angelo Collis. I last visited the Grows there in 1956.In 1995 I came back through White Pine county to see how you'd managed with the Kennecott closure.Fortunately you did a great job recovering from that harsh economic blow and I congratulate you.My son recently visited Ely and was also impressed. I hope I get to visit you again soon.

I have many fond memories of time spent in Ely visiting my cousins in the 1940's and 50's.In fact several cousins graduated from White Pine High School,and my cousin Gerry Grow played football for the famous Angelo Collis.Coach Collis teams beat the much larger Las Vegas so often they finally hired him away.A high school football field in Las Vegas is named for him.

The site is pretty good but with the housing, it doesn't have ANYTHING that says there is PROPERTY for sale. Just homes. I'd like to have info on the price of an acre and where you can get it and where you can see MAPS of the property so I don't have to first DRIVE there to look around. Also, there are NO pictures of the camping areas nor the elevations. I sure don't wanna TOAST while camping or I'll go to UTAH.

You never know what you had till it's gone. I grew up in Ely and after being out in the world and hearing and seeing how others grew up and where they grew up, I thank God I had the opportunity to grow up and have such awesome memories. The friends I had. Please include more pictures on your site. Seeing the beauty I grew up with makes it easier to bare being away. I'd also like to see pictures of people who live there. People I might have grown up with. After all it's the awesome people of Ely who made it such a great place to have lived. I'll be back for my Class reunion in 2004.
