Goldfield's Court House
originally built in 1907.
There's more to see in Goldfield, NV, than the car forest I posted about separately
Goldfield was a h
appening place in the first decade of the 20th century due to the discovery of gold
— between 1903 and 1940, Goldfield's mines produced more than $86 million.(wikipedia).
Today it is the home to just under 300 people and a lot of "ghosts"(history) of miners who searched through its hills for gold.
For whatever reason I fell in love with Goldfied. I even got the t-shirt... and a ring with a flake of gold in it. There's nothing much about this town... yet at the same time it incites the imagination and curiosity like few other places. It's an aura sort of thing.
Bringing you back to reality fast, however, is the police. Watch out when driving through Goldfield... it is famous for surviving off speeding tickets from passersby.
