Nighthawk Ghost Town
Nighthawk located 20-minutes north of Loomis on the Loomis-Oroville Road is one of the the oldest mining districts when Washington was still a territory with claims dating to 1860s. By 1903 Nighthawk was a well established boom town with hotel, railroad depot, and saloon.
The town was officially platted in 1903 by the Nighthawk Reality Co. and named for the Nighthawk Mine. By 1865 it was said 3,000 miners were living in a tent boom town. Many of the original structures that still stand in Nighthawk today date to 1903.
