Goldfield Ghost Town’s Glory Hole and More

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Glory Hole Antiques, that is. An odd little junk shop with an open door, an interesting inventory, no price tags and no one in sight or within earshot. We put a few dollars in a jar for an old bottle and a small cannonball. Goldfield boomed in the early part of the century, following a 1903 bonanza strike, and was busy until 1940, after which it fell into decline. Few businesses are open or residences occupied now, with vacancy running about 90%. On U.S. Highway 95 in Nevada.
