Yes, Nevada has a Manhattan of its own and it 's not on an island. Manhattan has a long history from the 1867 sliver boom to the 1905 gold boom. Manhattan is still inhabited today.
Ore hoppers dot the landsape and a attest to the area's mining heritage.
It looks like someone used poles to keep the ore bin from falling down the hill. As time passes these bits of history will be lost to the elements.
This small headframe is just off the road that runs through town.
This is the vault door in the Nye & Ormsby County Bank building.
The bank was not open for long as the depression of 1907 brought a drop in gold prices.
This valut even had a side door.
Just a few hundred feet from the bank is this small mine. These mines are right in the town.
Mining activity in the area has continued on and off through the 1990's. This headframe is interesting because it uses wire cable to hold it erect. Most headframes were constructed completely out of wood.
This open pit gold mine is the remnant of more recent mining activity.
This ore hopper is just down the ridge from the Mustang and Broncho mines.
These remains are just down the hill from the ore hopper. There's a large boiler that may have powered the air compresser and winch.
The boiler still sits in place. You can see the firebox doors where fuel would be added to keep generating steam.
Aetna Iron Works is one of several foundries located in San Francisco that supplied mining equipment to mines throughout the west.
You can see how close the ore hopper is from the remains of the boiler building.
These mining shacks are perched on the side of the ridge. In the foreground is a small ore hopper and what appears to be an ore classifier.
This is the classifier. It appears to screen out the larger rocks allowing the small ore to drop through.
This appears to be a mine refuge station. It would be used by the miners in case of an underground emergency.
