Ghost Towns and Mines


The upper town is full of ruined stores, shops and homes. Some buildings are adobe, some are stone, some are wood. With a peak population of around 800, Jefferson had mercantile stores, boarding houses, restaurants, a Wells Fargo office, a drugstore, sawmills, hotels, a brewery, a bakery, a school, and a livery stable.

Because there is so much to see at this site, I’ve decided to provide a separate page for each area of interest. This page is dedicated to Upper Jefferson. Follow the link below to visit my Jefferson, NV page and see the other features of this historic mining complex.
