Since 1904 when this town was founded, a lot of things happened. This unincorporated community in Clark County, Nevada was once a very productive mining place. With the construction of the the railroad in 1910–1911, many new buildings appeared, including a school. But as nothing is static, the mining production declined after the World War I, and the population started to move away. There is not too much left today, other than the saloon, a small store, an abandoned cemetery and some decaying buildings.

I was there and didn’t see any ghosts… But it was not at night-time and I was not looking for them either. Fantasy or not, I agree that the town looks kind of spooky and dingy. I wouldn’t want to live there. One of the main places to visit is the Pioneer Saloon, which is said to be haunted.

The Pioneer Saloon and the General Store

One of the well known stories is about Clark Gable and his wife (Carole Lombard)’s tragic accident. The actor was waiting there for news on the airplane crash which resulted in her death.
