NGH Dennis Maring has called for all redshirts to gather at the former town of Rhyolite. Rhyolite, which takes its name from the rock found in the area, was the center of the Bullfrog mining district. Located by Shorty Harris and Ed Cross in 1904, the green rock they found led to the unusual name for the district. By 1905, the town was up and going. With outside investments in the mines, most notably by Charles Schwab, no relation to the progenitor of the Wall Street investment company, it boomed. Three railroads were built to the town, as were three water companies. By 1907 it was the largest community in southern Nevada. Unfortunately, the boom quickly went bust, and Rhyolite became one of the best-known ghost towns. Today it is a site for all Clampers to see and experience as part of our education into the history of the west.
