The Bushwhacker Jail is Nevada's oldest surviving building. It was one of the few  buildings not destroyed by federal militia, when they burned the town in 1863.

This building functioned as a jail from 1860 until 1960. It was restored for use as a museum in 1965, and entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.Constructed of native sandstone, the building is Federal in design. It consists of living quarters for the jailer's family, as well as cells for both men and women, and an exterior summer kitchen and garden.
