I toured the Goldfield Hotel yesterday, and while I was extremely excited about being able to step foot inside...I was also letdown that the current owner is renovating it and not preserving much of the historic details of this beautiful building. I learned that it’s been privately owned for several years, and private ownership means that whomever is in control of it would have to elect putting it up on the National Historic Register. Since no one wanted to bother because of the hoops one must jump thru when renovating an historic building, this place isn’t protected and the owner is doing what he pleases with it. Kinda sad, but it is what it is. Since my photo ops were not what I anticipated, I got creative. This is an image of Brown Parker Auto Co. Garage, as seen from the fourth floor of the Goldfield Hotel. The view of this little town from above is incredible.
