TOWN OF LUNING
  Luning is located on US 95 South about 25 miles east of Hawthorne. Prior to 1881, Luning was a stage station known as Deep Wells and the stages ran to Downeyville, Grantsville and Belmont. In 1881, the Carson & Colorado Railroad passed through this location. At the time, the name was changed to Luning to honor a heavey stock owner of the railroad. Today Luning is kept active with a post office, a bar, a gas station and about 100 residents.
