Eldorado Canyon Ghost Town

The best Ghost Town weddings in Nevada are at Eldorado Canyon Ghost Town! Located near the town of Nelson Nevada, back in 1775, it was named Eldorado by the Spaniards who made the original discoveries of gold in this area that is now Eldorado Canyon. A hundred years later the prospectors and miners of the day took over and established the notorious Techatticup Mine. Disagreements over ownership and management and labor disputes resulted in wanton killings so frequent as to be routine and ordinary. Despite the sinister reputation of the mine, it along with others in the town produced several million dollars in gold, silver, copper and lead.

Today, Eldorado Canyon is a very popular spot for Las Vegas photographers. It has a couple of old barns, a saloon, gas pumps, old rusted-out vehicles, a water pump and even the remains of a plane crash. The plane crash is actually from a movie that filmed out in Eldorado Canyon and makes for great photo opportunities. Inside the main building you will be able to see a bunch of artifacts from the area and dozens of photos of all the movie stars that have filmed movies in the area. One of the scenes from the Kevin Costner movie 3000 Miles to Graceland was filmed there.
