Zeb Kendall House History

It was deemed significant for its association with Zebeniezer “Zeb” Kendall (d.1954), a prominent Tonopah citizen who developed mining interests, operated the Palace Hotel and represented Nye County in the Nevada state legislature.

It is also significant for its architecture as a well-preserved Neo-Colonial wood-frame structure.

Zebenizer “Zeb” Kendall was an early leaser who also operated the Palace Hotel, the first hostelry, in Tonopah. His development of the January lease in Goldfield in 1904 also helped/precipitate that district’s tremendous mining rush.

Zeb Kendall also served terms from 1909 to 1917 as state Senator in 1933.

Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!
