McGill's History Book

Many of the articles and photographs appearing on the history timeline and archive of this website were taken from the book, "McGill, Nevada - Over 100 Years of History", which was published by the McGill Town Council in June 2007. Countless hours were spent by Roxane Ballandby, a McGill Town Council Member, to compile the stories and photographs from members of the White Pine Communities of McGill and the surrounding area that made the first edition. The 400+ page book was edited by Evie Pinneo, White Pine Chamber of Commerce, and Anne Schroeder, McGill Town Council and printed by Silver State Industries.
