Ghost Towns

Nevada doesn’t have a lot of area where economic activity can be enjoyed to grow long term roots. Ranching is well spread out due to the arid conditions. Farming is reliable in only a few spots. Transportation services tend to be at the few major crossroads. Otherwise, it is a short term thing for activities such as mining that are profitable when the price is right. That means a lot of ghost towns.

A portal to pages, links and photo galleries is on the website as Northern Nevada Ghost Towns. It can provide a start if you want to join those who make a hobby out of finding and touring these abandoned communities. Visiting them often means some significant rough road travel. The pillaging of the sites has not been kind, either, for those who want a glimpse of the past in situ.
