The Forgotten Nevada’s High School (20 pics)

Goldfield used to be the biggest city in the state of Nevada with 30,000 citizens in 1904. It was a mining boomtown, but the gold mines started to run out by 1920s. And the fire of 1923 destroyed most of Goldfield’s wooden buildings. Nowadays this semi-ghost town is still populated with about 400 people. Most of the buildings are empty, including the abandoned High School of Goldfield.

We live about 120 miles from Goldfield and it is always odd on the trip down to Vegas to see this and the old Goldfield Hotel sitting there empty.

With this wonderful world economy that could be half of the world now. What do the 400 people that still live there do?

this place is not as dead as it seems. the population is actually up since a low of 275 in 1950 and is now something of an artist / writers enclave... with a festival and renovations of historic sites and such.
