In Rhyolite, Nevada - a Ghost Town

Kent Burton

Tifton, United States

Artist's Description

This vacated town, just east of Death Valley, California and west of Beatty, Nevada, was a mining “boom town” in the first decade of the 20th century due to the mineral discoveries in the area, but the population of about 9-10 thousand (at it’s peak) disappeared after only about 10-11 years when the mines played out. Several buildings are left in various states of ruin at this interesting site, including a school house,a bank, a rail road depot, this merchantile store and several others. It’s setting in a very lonely and desolate landscape make it a fascinating place to visit.
