About The Mizpah Hotel
The Mizpah Hotel was built in 1907, shortly after the town of Tonopah was founded. Once the tallest building in Nevada, the hotel quickly became the heart of town providing lodging, libations and entertainment to fuel the great Nevada silver rush. After more than one hundred years of ups and downs, transfers of ownership and natural calamities, Fred and Nancy Cline purchased the Mizpah in early 2011. The hotel has been fully restored, preserving its historic charm and character.
