Caliente, formerly known as Culverwell and Calientes, is a city in Lincoln County, Nevada, United States. Its elevation is 4,300 feet (1,310 meters). The population was 1,130 at the 2010 census. The city's name originated from the nearby hot springs, as "caliente" is the Spanish word meaning "hot".HistoryCaliente was founded in 1901 on Culverwell Ranch, built on land owned by William and Charles Culverwell. The town was initially given the name of Calientes, due to the hot springs present in the area, but later in the year a post office was erected and workers removed the "s" from the name of the town. In 1905, the Union Pacific railroad was completed, followed by the construction of the train depot in the style of Spanish mission architecture.
