May's Featured Location: 
Old Town Dayton.

In 1999, the town of Dayton, Nevada, held the 150th Anniversary of Nevada's first gold discovery-in Gold Ca´┐Żon, where the Comstock was born. In 2001 Dayton again celebrated as Nevada's first permanent settlement in 1851. Dayton boasts many other firsts in Nevada's history, including being the site of Nevada's first Chinatown and home of Lyon County's first courthouse.

Pick up a self-guided walking tour at the Dayton Museum (Shady Lane at Logan) and see Nevada's oldest cemetery, the Carson & Colorado Railroad Depot, camel stables, the famed Odeon Hall & Saloon, the Rock Point Mill, the jail and firehouse, the 1865 school house and much more. Walk the streets blazed by explorers, emigrants, miners, Pony Express riders and Wells Fargo stages. At day's end, savor a brew at one of the historic bars on the Overland Trail and Lincoln Highway.
