Pahrump is about one hour and a half away from Beatty, NV, and about an hour away from Las Vegas. It is a small town that called attention on account of the one winery... which actually turned out to be two, but it provided entertainment for most of a day. There are casinos, one of them includes bowling and other family entertainment. Unlike Beatty, Pahrump has a McDs, an Albertsons, a CVS, a Panda Express, a Walmart... you get my drift... all the solutions for our first-world-problems.

Free. Explains the history of the town, according to the attendant, originally a group of people on their way to California who found a nice enough place and called their trip off. The museum includes several walk-in buildings, including homes, a school, a miner's shed, and more.

I just found this impressive. Miners would wear this to survive the cold.

To see a tree that would have been alive during Shakespeare's time floors me.

This sculpture is not alive yet hurt my head good... outside the Pahrump Museum.
