Elko County Courthouse is a historic building listed on the National Register of Historic Places and located at 571 Idaho Street in Elko, Nevada.

History[edit]

The original courthouse building was finished in 1869.[2] It was torn down in 1910 and replaced with the current building.[3]

The site was "a scene of terror" on the night of July 18, 1870, when a giant burning chandelier fell into a throng of people.[4]
