Luning is an unincorporated town in Mineral County, Nevada, in the United States. Luning is on U.S. Highway 95, between Hawthorne and Mina. Luning had an active railroad loading facility for many years. Magnesium ore from Gabbs was trucked to Luning and transferred to railroad cars bound for the West in World War II. The Basic Refractories mine in Gabbs was opened in 1955; it produced magnesium that was also trucked to the Luning loading platform, where most men in town worked. A sign on the Long Branch Saloon says "Settled 1864." The saloon - still open in 1980 - has since closed. The town's one-room school is well maintained, but is also closed. It is often listed as a ghost town, but it is not. The population of Luning, Nevada, as of 2005 is 87. There is also an active page for the "ghost" town on Facebook, maintained by residents. The town once had a small store with attached gas station, a saloon, volunteer fire department station, and a post office. Except for the post office at 202 Plymire Street, all have since closed. The ZIP Code of Luning is 89420. Luning has two recent improvements: cell phones and a highway rest stop.
