Description
The collection consists largely of letters, forms, and invoices, pertaining to the everyday operation of the Eureka and Palisade.
Background
The Eureka and Palisade Railroad was organized in 1873 to provide transportation between the Nevada mining camp of Eureka and the Central Pacific Railroad at Palisade. The following year, a group of California and Nevada financiers, including Isaac Requa, William Sharon, and Darius Ogden Mills, took control of the company from the local promoters. The narrow gauge line was completed the following year.
