Recorder | Cindy Nixon
Welcome to the web page for the Mineral County Recorder
This office serves as a dual capacity office but also provides numerous other services to the citizens of Mineral County. As a small rural County, this is an effective and efficient way of saving taxpayer dollars. The current staff includes one full time elected official and one full time employee.
As the Recorder, I am responsible for providing the prompt service of recording public records, preservation of records and providing public access to these records. Our records date back to the establishment of Mineral County in 1911. All records are indexed by the names of the principal parties for any document or “grantee/grantor”. To locate a document, you will need the name of at least one party. I am proud to offer the technology acquired and implemented in our office over the last ten years. Our official records index system is available online dating back to January 1985. To research our records prior to 1985, I invite you to stop by our office in Hawthorne and meet our staff.
Also maintained by our office are bound copies of the Mineral County Independent News back to the 1930’s and the Walker Lake Bulletin back to 1911 for research purposes.
