Located along the canyon of the East Walker River in the southeastern corner of Lyon County, extending from the vicinity of Wichman Canyon on the north to the Mineral county line on the east and the south. Most of the district is in Lyon County. According to Paher (1971), the district was originally known as Washington but [the northern part?] was reorganized as Cambridge in 1867. The General Land Office 1866 map shows Cornell district located south of the Walker River district, between the Walker River and Esmeralda districts.
Stretch (1867) located the Cornell district in the Wassuk Mountains, west of Walker Lake and south of the Desert district. The 1880 map shows Cornell to generally coincide with the Washington district, although it may have included some of the western Mount Grant district as well.
