Welcome to Ione

Ione is about 5 miles north of Berlin. In 1864 it became the first county seat of Nye County, but for only 3 years. Ione has boomed and declined ever since with fluctuations in the price of silver and the discovery of richer deposits elsewhere, but it has yet to be completely abandoned.
