c. 1862. West side of Main St. (NV 342), about .2 mile south of northern Silver City limits

Originally a grocery store, the Hardwicke House is one of the best examples surviving from Silver City's nineteenth-century commercial corridor. Built on a steep slope, it has one story on its front facade and two at the rear. A coursed ashlar facade rises to a stepped parapet; side walls are rougher random-coursed stone.
