Ward Charcoal Ovens – Nevada

Way out in the Egan Mountain Range in eastern Nevada, Ward Charcoal Ovens (now a State Historic Park) are six beehive shaped charcoal ovens that were used from 1876 through 1879 to help process rich silver ore n the area. Once the mining ended, the ovens were used to shelter travelers and even had a reputation as a hideout for stagecoach bandits.
