Rhyolite Ghost Town
Rhyolite, Nevada is a ghost town in Nye County, Nevada, United States. It is located in the Bullfrog Hills, about 3.8 miles west of the town of Beatty, near the eastern edge of Death Valley. Goldwell Open Air Museum, a free admission outdoor sculpture park, is located at the southern entrance to Rhyolite, off Highway 374.
The town came into existence as the result of a gold rush that began in 1904, and had its peak population from 1905 to 1910, when decreased gold production led to a decline that culminated in its abandonment by 1919.
