083 - Nevada Ghost Towns (Print)
Photograph America Newsletter on Nevada Ghost Towns
 
The wide-open spaces of Nevada are scattered with the crumbling remains of long-abandoned ghost towns which sprang up around gold and silver mines in the 1800's. At least 1,700 documented sites of abandoned and still-active mines can be found on maps of Nevada. I narrowed my list down to twelve ghost towns in the mountains of central Nevada and the southern deserts. This issue has all the details on how to find them, including GPS coordinates, when to travel, and the best time of day for the best light. I've also included photographs of the mines and the miners' shacks plus the remains of old store fronts and saloons.
