PERSHING COUNTY, NV - Land Ho is Offering...

If you have a passion for adventure, enjoy the outdoors, or are looking for open space with good air and the ability to see the stars at night, Lovelock and Pershing County would fulfill your needs. You can see why the settlers called Lovelock the "Big Meadows" and used the lush green grasses to feed their stock prior to engaging the wrath they encountered in crossing the 40-mile desert.

If you are a history buff or just enjoy stepping back in time, you can visit the Marzen House Museum, the former showplace of Colonel Joseph Marzen and the historical round courthouse that's design was inspired by the Pantheon of Rome. A railroad buff? Visit the refurbished 1880 depot - the only number two SP station house still in existence today. An adventurer can follow in the footsteps of the pioneers on the emigrant trails through Pershing County - California Trail, Humboldt Route, Applegate-Lassed and Nobles Trails either by foot, horseback or off-road vehicles. One can also visit the sites and learn the history of the 5 historical markers located in the county.

Visit the Lovelock Caves, the home of prehistoric tribes and the original site of the prized tule ducks, and learn of the legendary red-haired giants, or visit one of the nine ghost towns in the County. Avid rockhounds and precious gems collectors can roam the mountains and find fossilized seashells dating back some 200 million years, petrified wood dating back some 15 million years and the tufa formations - remanents of the water that once covered the area. Take advantage of the abundance of gemstones such as opals, Apache tears, quartz and even gold and silver found in the mountains that surround the valley. Pershing County is known for its hunting and fishing with chucker, pheasant, wild turkeys, bighorn sheep, and mountain lions all being formidable prey. Rye Patch is a great site for boating, water skiing, swimming, and camping while Unionville, former home of Mark Twain, with its 1861 Bed and Breakfast, offers a quiet getaway and a look into the past.

Those looking for a challenge can follow the mountain bike trails or ATV riders can explore the backcountry or the Black Rock Desert. Pershing County is also a haven for photographers with everything from wild horses and burros to the magnificent sunsets that grace the horizon.
