Most of us who drive through Austin can’t help but gawk at the relics of one of Nevada’s oldest settlements. The town is a historic layer cake with over 150 years of buildings, history, and lore to uncover.

Now, there’s a new reason to spend a night soaking in the old boomtown with the grand opening of the Magnolia Gallery & Inn. The charming 2-room lodge is perfectly situated in the heart of Austin.

When the building was originally constructed in 1864, the town was booming from the surrounding silver mines and boasted a population of over 1,000.

The building has been a music store, a saloon, a grocery store, a cafe, a boarding house, an ice cream parlor, and a real estate office.

Now reopened as an inn, the owners have worked to preserve the site’s original decor and ambience.

Treat yourself to a night in old Austin. Visit at 103 Main St #149 or call 775-530-2241.
