This map is a copy of the original linen map drawn by
General William Stark Rosecrans in 1876, and
subsequently donated to the White Pine Public Museum

The map was scanned by the Nevada State Library in
2010 and recently photo edited by Graphics &
Technology Center and framed by “Creations”, both of

Egan Canyon was the established route of the Pony
Express and Overland Stage when gold was discovered
in about 1861 along the north side of the Canyon, less
than a mile from Egan Station. Early travelers discovered
and staked the first mining claims in the first mining
district with the first stamp mill in Eastern Nevada.
General W. S. Rosecrans, a Civil War commander and
battlefield cartographer, organized the San Jose Mining
Company here in 1882, after the original discoveries had
played out. His map shows not only the gold mines,
geology, mills and claims, but also the only known
configuration and location of Egan Station.
Incidentally, north, as depicted by the Magnetic Meridian
at the top of the map, is to the right. The view is
looking west, towards Reno.
