A walk thru Goldfield Nv

Early morning tour of Goldfield Nevada. Goldfield is a cool old town that still has some working mines and a lot of history. Below is some information from Wiki.

Goldfield is a community located in Esmeralda County Nevada with a population of around 270.
Goldfield was a boomtown in the first decade of the 20th century due to the discovery of gold between 1903 and 1940, Goldfield’s mines produced more than $86 million. Much of the town was destroyed by a fire in 1923, although several buildings survived and remain today, notably the Goldfield Hotel, the Consolidated Mines Building (the communications center of the town until 1963), and the schoolhouse. Gold exploration continues in and around the town today.
Gold was discovered at Goldfield in 1902, its year of inception. By 1904, the Goldfield district produced about 800 tons of ore, valued at $2,300,000, 30% of the state’s production that year. This remarkable production caused Goldfield to grow rapidly, and it soon became the largest town in the state with about 20,000 people.

Historic 1881 Eureka Opera House in Nevada – Road Trip Vlog 17

Restored 1881 Eureka Opera House on Hwy 50 in Nevada where they were having the Nevada State Old Time Fiddler’s Contest.
See it at:

Eureka, Nevada was settled by some silver prospectors from nearby Austin n 1864 when they found silver/lead ore at Prospect Peak. By 1873, Eureka was Nevada’s second ranking mineral producer next to the Comstock Lode.

In 5 years, the population of Eureka would swell to 9,000 people. Their economic mainstay would be in operating the smelters that would separate silver from lead. With all of the black smoke and soot coming from 16 smelters, Eureka would be known as the “Pittsburgh of the East”.

Due to a decrease in mine production, the smelters closed down and the population fell. During its heyday, Eureka had over 100 saloons, several gambling places, an opera house, hotels, churches and 5 fire departments.

The population consisted of Irish and Cornish miners, German, Italians (including the Carbonari who manufactured charcoal for smelters), Chinese and Jewish settlers. The population that wasn’t miners worked in general labor, making food, the laundry business or in medicine. It was a thriving town.

Lex was quick to point out a rare 5 hole outhouse erected in the middle of the town. We really didn’t know it was that rare till we read the historical marker on the fence surrounding it – the fence was probably to protect it from people who might still want to use it. It must have been quite a prize because it was the object of a lawsuit between two men who claimed ownership.

We decided to leave the famous outhouse alone and visit The Eureka Opera House.

Austin Nevada – Part 2 “The Way It Was Grand Tour”



Views:2735|Rating:4.63|View Time:57:45Minutes|Likes:25|Dislikes:2
It all started in 1862 when a pony express ride by the name of W.H. Talcott’s horse kicked up a rock at the mouth of pony canyon which turned out to be high grade silver and gold ore. This led to a silver rush by the time the mid 1860s rolled around this town boasted a lumber mill, saloons, brothels, assay office, banks, hospital, hotels, telegraph station, four hundred houses and at least 10k residents. Although floods, fires and elements have erased a large portion of this living ghost town what does remain are some of the finest structures in the wild west such as its frontier churches. Austin held the Lander County seat for many decades it also brought millions of dollars in silver revenue and for a short time hosted the Nevada Central Railroad. This was a town that boasted the good, bad and the ugly everything from epidemics to axe yielding men and frontier justice. Austin not only has one of the oldest saloons/hotels in the state but one of the last Greek revival court houses in the nation and one of the oldest operating Nevadan newspapers that still exist today. Today life has slowed down in Austin to about 200 residents. Many shops thrive on tourism and the sale of there jewelry. Life in this canyon dates back to 3,500 years ago when the Shoshone used Pony Canyon to hunt and sustain themselves. We welcome you to journey with us as I take our friends and viewers to the way it was!

Glendale – A Montana Ghost Town – near Melrose, Montana MT



Views:4136|Rating:5.00|View Time:6:37Minutes|Likes:17|Dislikes:0
The ghost town of Glendale, just west of Melrose, began around a smelter built in 1875. The smelter burned in 1879 and a larger smelter was built in its place a couple of years later. During the mining boom of the 1880’s 2,000 people lived in Glendale.

Glendale was the most sober, non-violent, civilized town in the area. It contained schools, churches, stores, offices and even a water works system and fire protection.

The roaster glowed red as the three 50-ton blast furnaces roared. Bullion from the Glendale furnaces was melted into 90 pound silver bars and shipped to Omaha for final processing. The district produced 18-22 million dollars in silver and other metals.

In 1900 the mines were closed and the smelter torn down. Today, nature has overtaken the town. Most of its buildings are gone; some moved, others consumed by fire. The few structures that remain are in ruins. The town is full of rock foundations, an indication of a prosperous time past.

It wasn’t until I reviewed the video that I realized I should have been wearing a hard hat around the base of the chimney! A lot of bricks are precariously balanced at the top and are ready for the journey to the ground at any moment!

This sequence was captured with a Canon Vixia HFS-100 camera and a GoPro Hero3 Black on a DJI Phantom quad copter (drone). It was edited with Adobe Premier Pro 6.

Originally a public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

California (kæləˈfɔrnjə/) is a state located on the West Coast of the United States. It is the most populous U.S. state, and the third most extensive (after Alaska and Texas). It is home to the nation’s second and sixth largest census statistical areas (Greater Los Angeles area and San Francisco Bay Area, respectively), and eight of the nation’s 50 most populated cities (Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento, Long Beach, and Oakland). The capital city is Sacramento.

California’s diverse geography ranges from the Pacific Coast in the west, to the Sierra Nevada mountains in the east — from the Redwood–Douglas-fir forests of the northwest, to the Mojave Desert areas in the southeast. The center of the state is dominated by Central Valley, a major agricultural area. California contains both the highest and lowest points in the contiguous United States (Mount Whitney and Death Valley), and has the 3rd longest coastline of all states (after Alaska and Florida). Earthquakes are a common occurrence due to the state’s location along the Pacific Ring of Fire: about 37,000 are recorded annually…

Oregon (ɔrɨɡən/ ORR-ə-gən) is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. It is located on the Pacific coast, with Washington to the north, California to the south, Nevada on the southeast and Idaho to the east. The Columbia and Snake rivers delineate much of Oregon’s northern and eastern boundaries, respectively. The area was inhabited by many indigenous tribes before the arrival of traders, explorers, and settlers who formed an autonomous government in Oregon Country in 1843. The Oregon Territory was created in 1848, and Oregon became the 33rd state on February 14, 1859…

Washington (wɒʃɪŋtən/) is a state in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States located north of Oregon, west of Idaho and south of the Canadian province of British Columbia, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Washington was carved out of the western part of Washington Territory which had been ceded by Britain in 1846 by the Oregon Treaty as settlement of the Oregon Boundary Dispute. It was admitted to the Union as the 42nd state in 1889…

Nevada (nəˈvædə/) is a state in the western, mountain west, and southwestern regions of the United States. Nevada is the 7th most extensive, the 35th most populous, and the 9th least densely populated of the 50 United States. Over two-thirds of Nevada’s people live in one single county, Clark County, which contains the Las Vegas–Paradise metropolitan area, where the state’s three largest incorporated cities are located. Nevada’s capital is Carson City. Nevada is officially known as the “Silver State” due to the importance of silver to its history and economy. It is also known as the “Battle Born State” because it achieved statehood during the Civil War and the “Sagebrush State” for the native eponymous plant…

The Jualpa Mining Camp, also known as the Last Chance Basin Camp, is a former gold mining camp, just outside the city of Juneau, Alaska. Its main building is now operated as the Last Chance Mining Museum by the Gastineau Historical Society. The camp was located on the southern banks of Gold Creek, about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Juneau, near what is now the end of Basin Road. The camp was the site of one of the largest gold finds in the Juneau mining district. It was established between 1910 and 1913 by the Alaska-Juneau Gold Mining Company and operated until 1944, producing more than $80 million worth of gold. The largest surviving structure of the camp is its air compressor building, which was 84 feet (26 m) long, and still houses the compressor used by the company. Also surviving are a variety of railroad-related resources, which the company used to bring or to its mill on the Gastineau channel, an electrical transformer house, powder magazine, and cable hoist.
