The tiny Nevada town of Yerington—formerly known as Pizen Switch and Greenfield—was named in 1894 and incorporated in 1907. This 8.6-square-mile town has just over 3,000 residents and is 4,378 feet above sea level. Yerington is the current county seat of Lyon County. After the Dayton courthouse burned down in 1909, the county seat was moved to Yerington in 1911. Yerington relies heavily on agriculture and tourism, and this quaint Nevada town has retained its old west charm.
