Sutro Tunnel & Site Guided Tour

July 17 @ 10:00 am 12:30 pm


Visit the historic Sutro Tunnel site and see our restoration progress! We are revitalizing and restoring the Site and Tunnel in Dayton, NV daily. You are seeing history in the making and will be able to be a part of it by visiting the site.

One of the best ways to visit the Sutro Tunnel and historic Site is by attending one of our guided history tours of the Site & inside the Tunnel itself.

Our Guided History Tours are offered twice a month, on the Third Wednesday and Third Saturday of the month throughout the Season (April to October). See Tour Dates below.

You will be given a guided tour by our some of our historic docents Pat Neylan (co-curator/docent at St. Mary’s in the Mountain’s Museum in Virginia City and local historian), Lee Brunnell (of the Donovan Mill in Silver City, CA), Dan Webster (author of Mills Along the Carson River) and/or Chris Pattison (Friends of Sutro Tunnel Charity).

Learn the history of Adolph Sutro and how this famous tunnel came to be. You will see historic machinery that has stood the test of time, an electric mule ore cart, the historic buildings of the site, our private lake that is fed from the still running water from the tunnel, the foundation from Adolph’s mansion, our museum, plus much more and the iconic Sutro Tunnel Portal.

Historic places like this are fading to time and being pillaged. Thankfully, this historically significant 28-acre site has been donated to our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Friends of Sutro Tunnel.
Because of you, purchasing a ticket and visiting the site, we are able to fund the restoration efforts of the Sutro Tunnel & our 11 historic buildings on Site.

And now, because of tour tickets and generous donors like you, our tour includes entry inside the Sutro Tunnel itself–which has been restored the first 50 feet, based on Adolph Sutro’s original design!
Thank you for supporting us, the community and Nevada’s history.
