  • St. Mark's Protestant Episcopal Church (Bret Morgan)

Like many of Tonopah's other buildings, this church has rock-faced granite ashlar walls. The one-story building on a raised stone basement has a steeply pitched gable roof with a small king-post truss and two lancet windows flanking the main entrance. A gabled entry porch rests on a wood framework forming pointed arches. Local architect G. B. Lyons and local stonemason E. E. Burdick collaborated on the church, which is one of the best-constructed stone buildings in Tonopah.
