Artist's Description

Gold Point, Nevada is located 30 miles southwest of Goldfield, eight miles off SR 266, at an elevation of 5,400 feet.

It began in 1868 and was originally known as Lime Point. Later, a type of silver ore known as horn silver was discovered and the town was called Hornsilver.

Silver was mined from 1915 to 1927, until there was a large gold discovery. The camp then became known as Gold Point, since more gold than silver was being mined.

After gold mining declined, Gold Point became a ghost town. The old camp consists of numerous original buildings, including the post office, which now serves as a museum. Some of the old buildings are being restored.
