It is associated with Willliam Bell, a two-term Nevada State Senator from Humboldt County and a prominent local figure. Buckskin National Mine is a source of archaeological information needed to answer scientific and scholarly research questions about the National Mining District community, miner's living conditions and lifestyles, women on the mining frontier, consumerism, and mining technology.
