Query: G.N.I.S.

Small town along U. S. Hwy 93 in the Pahranagat Valley.

Alamo, the principal town of Pahranagat Valley, was formed around 1900 by Fred Allen, Mike Botts, Bert Riggs and William T. Stewart. It was settled largely by individuals and families from Fredonia, Arizona. The post office was established on May 12, 1905.
