Dinner Station

Nevada State Historical Marker
      Dinner Station stands as a reminder of Nevada's stagecoach era. Established in the early 1870's by William C. (Hill) Beachey as a meal stop for the Tuscarora and Mountain City stage lines, it was originally known as Weilands. The name was later changed to Oldham's Station when a change of ownership took place. A frame structure originally accommodated the traffic, but a fine two-story stone station house, out-buildings and a corral were built following a fire in the 1800's. Early in the Twentieth Century, both automobiles and hose-drawn stages stopped at Dinner Station and it became one of the most popular country inns of the time. After 1910, when automobiles become more common, the station ceased to be used.
