Rock House

Circa 1880

This is the oldest standing house in Mesquite and was continuously used as a residence from 1894 until 2003. The original portion of the house dates from circa 1880 occupation when Mesquite Flats was temporarily settled. The large rocks made the walls of the room 18-20 inches thick. An adobe lean-to was added later.

This is Mesquite Historic Marker #11 (see others on this page) located at 110 East 100 North in Mesquite, Nevada
