 Tonopah’s first cemetery was opened in 1901 and served as the resting place for local residents until 1911, when the town outgrew the small plot and a new cemetery was opened west of town. Those buried in the old cemetery include the victims of a mysterious plague that claimed the lives of over 30 townspeople in the winter of 1901-1902, the cause of which has never been identified. There are also victims of various mining accidents, and those that succumbed to the hardships of frontier life.

It is one of the most well kept cemeteries we have seen. Found out that one of the tasks for community service is to keep it clean and they have done a very good job. Another note, every halloween the kids come down and chose a grave, researched about the person and dressed up as them and reenacted how they died. All this information, we received from the lady in the clown hotel.
