Home of the Cave BearThe bones of two giant short-faced bears (Arctodus simus) were discovered in a White Pine County cave in 1982. This model of the 12,000-year-old “Cave Bears” is exhibited at the White Pine Public Museum.
White Pine County – It’s Beginnings
Cherry Creek DepotThe railway depot from Cherry Creek was moved to the White Pine Public Museum in Ely in the fall of 1990. Local elementary school students raised $11,000 to fund the move. The building, now 99 years old, is a step back in time. You will enjoy going inside and viewing the waiting room, ticket booth and living quarters.
