Ghost Towns, Mines, and More!


South of Pioche, NV there were several old mines just east of the highway. I’ve been unable to find out anything about these mines, other than that one of them was named the Bowery Mine.

These photos were shot on slide film in 1998. Just a few years later a brushfire swept through the area and destroyed some of these mine structures. A modern home has been built in the area where the few remaining mines were located, and they might now be inaccessible.

In 2016 I scanned the old slides and created this page.
