Ghost Towns, Mines, and More!


The town of Taylor, NV began in 1883. By 1893 the mines were no longer profitable, and the town soon died. Currently the town site has been obliterated by a modern open-pit mine and its waste piles. All that remains of earlier work is this solitary headframe, the hoist house, and a shack. These have changed very little since my first visit in 1997.

I have a brief aerial video of this mine:
