On June 13, 1972 the town of Belmont was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The courthouse was included as a part of this historic district.
The Belmont Courthouse nestled at the head of Ralston Valley, at one time stood as an elegant centerpiece of the county seat of Nye County, Nevada. The construction began in 1875 and it was completed in 1876; it served for 29 years as the county courthouse before the county seat was moved to Tonopah, Nevada in 1905.
