Former mining town in west-central Nevada.

A typical mining town at the foot of the San Francisco Mountains was fed by the fabulously rich horn silver mine. By 1885 over $60,000,000 in zinc, copper, lead, silver, and gold were hauled away by mule train and the Utah Central Railroad. Water was shipped in as well as all supplies. The the mine caved and people moved away, leaving only a few families of the 4,000 population to maintain their homes, stores, school, and church. By the 1920's only memories and the shifting sands were left. Other possible names were: Horn Silver Camp and Silver Desert Camp.
