Built in 1907. Sprague came to Goldfield in December 1905 with an established reputation as a prominent newspaperman and politician from Colorado. In January 1906 he purchased the Goldfield News and developed the newspaper into one of the most successful businesses in the district.

“The Gables” was where Mrs. Blanche Sprague founded the Nevada Branch of the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1910. Mrs. Sprague, a member of the Mayflower Society, was a descendent of both John Alden and Miles Standish, and was a leader in both the social and charitable activities of Goldfield.
