The Great Basin National Heritage Area is a geographical region encompassing White Pine County, Nevada and Millard County, Utah and adjacent Indian reservations that contains nationally significant archaeological, historical, cultural, natural and scenic features that are emblematic of the entire Great Basin Area. This website will help you learn more about the Great Basin National Heritage Area, its important heritage features, how to best visit the area, and how to become involved with the organization that helps coordinate promotion of the Area and its heritage. National Heritage Areas are designated by Congress in recognition of the contributions they make in making up the unique fabric of our country. There are more than 40 such Areas in the United States. Designation confers no authority to manage or regulate land use in any way.
The Great Basin National Heritage Area lies at the crossroads of US Highways 50 and 93 and can be conveniently reached from Salt Lake City, Utah, Las Vegas, Carson City or Reno, Nevada. Although it is a bit of a drive, the ride is scenic and generally pleasant. Getting here can be an adventure in itself.
