Settled around 1865, Hiko was the county seat of Lincoln County, Nevada from 1867 to 1871, its population largely dependent on the silver mines in the area, but was replaced as the county seat by Pioche. A stamp mill that was established there in 1866 failed, and was moved to Bullionville in 1870, after which the town declined in population. Today, the town is an unincorporated agrarian community in the Tonopah Basin, inhabited by just over a hundred people, most of whom reside on ranches or farms. Although the town remains populated, it is often referred to as a ghost town. It is accessed through Nevada Route 318.
