PIOCHE Continued from Dl the old Masonic Lodge, a crumbling crumbling miner's cabin and the stately but condemned Mountain View Hotel, where President Jlerbert Hoover stayed in 1930. One especially interesting building is the Million Dollar Courthouse, which stands next to ' the Mountain View Hotel on Lacour Street. Allan Malintak, a tour guide with the long white beard of a turn-of-the-century turn-of-the-century turn-of-the-century turn-of-the-century turn-of-the-century turn-of-the-century turn-of-the-century prospector, tells the story of how the original 1871 price tag of $16,400 somehow ballooned through debt to about $1 million when the county finally paid it off in 1936. In addition to historical artifacts artifacts around the courthouse, a variety of mannequins occupy seats behind desks, in the jury box and even in the attached jail cell. This particular jail is about to receive some national publicity on the A&E show""Criss Angel Mindfreak." In early April, illusionist illusionist Criss Angel visited the jail to film a Harry Houdini-like Houdini-like Houdini-like escape for his show's third season, which begins in June. Other structures are even more to crumbling company buildings along U.S. Route 93. Then there's the Bank Club. It's now another of the town's bars, but it was originally built in the 1 860s to serve as the Pioche Bank. The old vault still sits in the back and now serves as the tavern's liquor room, says bartender Linda Rosemark as she pulls open the heavy vault door to reveal original safety deposit boxes sitting among the bottles of alcohol.

Despite it's origin as a financial institution, the Bank Club has been a bar for decades. Rosemark says there are plenty of old stories about the establishment's heyday. She sums up the Bank Club's history history with words similar to those used by Pioche residents to describe their town's rowdy past "I guess it used to be a pretty good, swingin' place back in the day." -
