RHYOLITE—(four miles West of Beatty on Hwy 374) Boom to bust, the story of many early mining towns in Nevada run about the same, but Rhyolite is quite the exception. It certainly boomed and it definitely busted, but what remains of what could-have-been is a must-see for any visitor to Beatty. Just four miles west of Beatty, Rhyolite was born in 1905, when samples of gold-laced rock were found in the Bullfrog Mining District. Such a discovery resulted in the usual real estate boom.
In fact, Rhyolite reached its peak in 1907, with an estimated 8,000-10,000 residents. But even more remarkable than the subsequent population spurt was the potential Rhyolite had — and embraced – to become the next Nevada metropolis. Built of stone and concrete, the town had three-story office buildings, banks, churches, an opera house, hotels, a school, dozens of streets, all complete with plumbing, electricity and telephone service. The town even had a stock exchange and gained the attention of investors in New York and San Francisco, as stock promoters sold speculative shares in Rhyolite ventures. Not to mention the red light district... How could a town that seemed set to stand the test of time, crumble to the ghost town status it proclaims today? Rhyolite has been likened to “the culmination of the gold rush era
Goldwell Open Air Museum—You’re in the middle of the desert, on your way to visit the area’s premier ghost town (Rhyolite), and suddenly off to the left you see a towering woman and a series of ghostly forms. This is the Goldwell Open Air Art Museum featuring the Painted Lady, a ghostly representation of the Last Supper, a ghostly bike rider, a “desert flower” and others. While you might think that this is a strange location for a modern art Sculpture garden, each piece has a tie with the history of the area—even the penguin following the miner!
