Rhyolite

Rhyolite is a ghost town located in the south of Nevada, near east of Las Vegas. At most, Rhyolite used to have a population of 5,000 people in the early 20th century. Its decline was a result of several factors such as the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, financial difficulties at the time and the closing of a Montgomery Shoshine mine which left many miners out of work. By 1920 the town had almost been completely abondened.
