Lincoln County is the third largest of Nevada’s seventeen counties, covering 10,634 square miles. Named for President Abraham Lincoln, the Nevada legislature established the county in 1867.
Lincoln County includes the communities of Pioche (the county seat), Panaca, Caliente, Alamo, Rachel, and Ursine. U.S. Highway 93 traverses the region in a north-south direction, and for about 120 miles it is designated as a “Scenic Highway.” The county is also served by the railroad between Salt Lake City and Las Vegas.
Five of Nevada’s twenty-three state parks–Beaver Dam, Cathedral Gorge, Echo Canyon, Kershaw-Ryan, and Spring Valley–are located within Lincoln County.

The Hospital Auxiliary is a group of volunteers who meet monthly and who run the thrift shop. The purpose is to raise money for the long-term care residents at the hospital.
Over the years they have raised an average of $12,000 a year for the acquisition of items and services which enhance the residents stay. This is all possible with the wonderful, generous, and caring support of the community.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, we are always looking for caring individuals who are willing to donate some time.
