About the Ely Renaissance Society
The Ely Renaissance Society was founded in 1999 by a
group of individuals with the vision of an attractive
downtown area which would be representative of the art and
culture belonging to the diverse group of people who had
built and strengthened the small community through the
years. Volunteers began by commissioning murals to show
the lifestyle of this Nevada community from historical
perspectives such as the Pony Express. The next venture
was to purchase a piece of property made up of 12 shotgun
houses and a barn. These small houses have been made into
unique museums depicting the turn of the century population
of Ely. Re-enactments and living history presentations are
held at the “Ely Renaissance Village” as well as many other
yearly activities from Farmer’s Market to the Art & Wine
Walk which celebrates local Nevada artists and their work.
