Sutro Tunnel

Hello and welcome to the Record of the Week! Last week, the team traveled to northern Nevada to discover township and mineral plats depicting the Sutro Tunnel! Built in the 19th century, this tunnel was a drainage site linked to the state's first exploration of silver, the Comstock Lode. Click here to check out this week's Record and learn more about the Sutro Tunnel!
