Old Knights of Columbus Hall (George A. Bartlett House)
This large Shingle Style house stands near the end of the town grid on the slope of Mt. Brougher, commanding a sweeping view of Tonopah. It is a well-executed example of a style rare in Nevada. A massive stone foundation, built into the hillside, supports the building. Its rambling, asymmetrical plan is contained by shingled walls under broadly spreading roofs. Entry is under a large porch held up by stone piers. The rear of the building has another deck supported in the same manner. Designed by an unknown architect, the house is one of Tonopah's most architecturally prominent residences. Its original owner, George A. Bartlett, a lawyer and later a U.S. congressman, lost the house in the Panic of 1907. After serving as a Knights of Columbus Hall for many years, the now vacant house is quickly deteriorating.
