Cemetery notes and/or description:
An Indian in 1866 showed prospectors that silver deposits were in the area. Quickly the town grew to hold 300 residents by 1867, with a blacksmith shop, restaurant, saloons, post office, hotel, and a assay office. The town had an upper and lower section where one had a ten stamp mill and the other a five stamp mill used for breaking ore. By 1868 mining declined but was revived in 1880 and only lasted one year. New ore was discovered in 1897 and mining activity lasted until 1912.
J.T. and Sophie Williams began building a hotel and home in the 1870's for the many teams, stagecoach drivers, passengers, and horses that passed through. The stone hotel built in 1908 is one of the most impressive structures in all of Nevada to survive that era.
