The Donovan Mill in Silver City, Nevada was established in 1860, and was the longest running stamp mill on the Comstock and is the largest historic stamp mill in the nation. It is only one of four mills left on the Comstock out of 260 stamp mills that were in operation back in the late 1800s. The Comstock Foundation purchased The Donovan in 2014 and saved it from being sold off piece by piece. Since then, tens of thousands of dollars have been spent on restoration of the mill. Thousands of dollars are still needed to complete restoration with progress being made every day.
