Good morning folks. It is another one of those cold, windy days, out here in the Nevada desert, near Beatty.
There are still a few building standing.
Back in 1909 it was the 3rd largest city in Nevada.
In 1906 it had piped water, electric lines and even a railroad line. Then in 1907 it had much more it add a few more goodies, like telephones, newspaper,
hospital, school and even a Opera House, which is still standing.
Now their casino is still standing and deck out with empty bottles on the fences. The have been repairing, so they can be preserved.
The town started to go down hill by 1911 when the mine closed.
By 1920 it was all most down to zero. Then Rhyolite became a "ghost town".
It is now overseen by the BLM.
What ever you have, enjoy it. Kitfoxgal
