McGill, Nevada is more than a great community, its an amazing community surrounded by a recreational paradise.
Although located in one of the most remote regions, its access to recreation is of major benefit to the residents who call McGill and the surrounding mountains and valleys home. Included in the varied recreational activites are: fishing, hunting, bike riding, hiking, rockhounding, wildlife viewing, and off road adventuring.
Located in the town boundaries of McGill are three parks: Circle Park, at the northern end of the downtown area; McGill Park, where the swimming pool is situated; and the McGill Ballpark near the McGill Elementary School.
Rexall Drug Store Museum
McGill Drug Co., in downtown McGill, is an old small-town drugstore frozen in time. The Drug Store is one of only three working soda fountains in the area, a symbol of small-town life prior to our modern era of large chain-stores. From a historical standpoint, it is an amazing record of every business transaction, invoice and prescription filled, as far back as 1915.
