Any estimates on the age of that one? Incredibly cool. Those brick arches on the door frame and some of the windows are neat.

The mining camp was established in 1865, but it was two years later that the mill was constructed in 1867. Mining operations ceased in 1890, but were restarted in 1905, only to cease again in 1916.

There is a gorgeous 360 view from the old mill's location with the Toiyabes to the west and Big Smoky Valley and the Toquima Range to the east.

Can you camp there? With a rig?
