Happy 150 to Elko! December 29, 1868 was the day the Central Pacific Railroad established Elko as they were building eastward. The Central Pacific and their Chinese workers were working to join the Union Pacific Railroad, forming the transcontinental railroad. This event happened in northern Utah, May 10, 1869!

75 Years Ago in Elko Daily Free Press

April 13, 1943: Pete Jauregui, who recently purchased the Star hotel from Frank Arrascada, plans to make some improvements. While they are necessarily limited, because of the times, he has purchased the bar from the Silver Dollar, formerly owned by Fernando Puccinelli. He plans to move it to the Star hotel. Oddly, Jauregui was the first owner of the hotel and after it changed hands a number of times has again come back to him. It was sold to him by Arrascada in a matter of seconds. During a recent conversation Arrascada expressed the opinion that he would sooner be outside, Jauregui said, “All right, if you feel like that and wish to sell, I’ll buy the hotel.” And so the deal was made. Charles Gardner was the contractor on the building, which was constructed in 1910 and 1911. Jauregui ran it for a number of years, during which time it became famous for the fine food which was served there. Later Peter Corta of Jiggs bought it from Jauregui, later Joe Corta, now of San Pedro, bought it from him. Frank Arrascada was the next owner and he elected to sell it back to Jauregui.

December 8, 1942: There will be no community Christmas tree for the city of Elko this year and no stringing of lights, such as was started last year. This announcement was made by Mayor David Dotta who said the city council was complying with a request from the government to discontinue such Christmas decorations for the duration of the war.

BING AND NEWT. Bing Crosby and Newt Crumley riding in the Silver State Stampede parade at Elko, Nevada (1955). Harry L. (Bing) Crosby needs no introduction as an entertainer. However, he also owned several cattle ranches in Elko County and was named honorary mayor of Elko. Newton H. (Newt) Crumley owned hotel/casino operations in Elko and Reno. In addition, he served as a state senator from Elko County and as a regent of the University of Nevada.
