  Barnwell
Photograph taken in June, 2000.

Originally the headquarters of the Briggs and Murphy Ranch. Joined with other ranches into the Rock Springs Land and Cattle Company in 1894.

The site of Barnwell was reached by the Nevada Southern Railway in 1893. At that time the site was named Manvel for the current president of the Santa Fe railroad.

The railroad was reorganized as the California Eastern Railway in 1895, and the branch line to Searchlight built in 1906-1907.

The name of this site was changed to Barnwell in 1907, named for a telegraph operator stationed there by the railroad company.
