The town of Battle Mountain began as a railroad station in 1869 and quickly became a hospitable stop for transcontinental railroad and highway travelers, morphing into a mining and ranching center. The Battle Mountain Cookhouse Museum celebrates this resilient town, preserving regional history with artifact displays, educational presentations and traveling cultural exhibits. A one-room historical library and center for many events — like the local wine walks — makes the old cookhouse from the 25 Ranch a nice place to mosey into, right off Interstate 80 at the corner of Burns Street and Broyles Ranch Road.

There are plenty of special Nevada events all year long at Battle Mountain. A virtual sportsman’s paradise, many of these Nevada events like the annual Chukar Tournament, celebrate everything the land has to offer. The Chukar Tournament is one of our most popular Nevada events and features a dinner, souvenir hat and a ticket for an ATV drawing and other great prizes. The hunt takes place from sunrise to sunset.
The World Human Powered Speed Challenge is another one of our fun events. This competition pits man and technology against the forces of air resistance and friction. The result is shockingly fast speeds in one of the most challenging Nevada events. Cultural celebrations include the Basque Club Winter Festival and the summer Cinco de Mayo Festival, honoring Battle Mountain’s rich heritage.
