POPULATED PLACES

 

This listing includes historic sites so if your research leads you to a town that isn't on the map, check it out here! Mining and the Railroad had a great deal to do with settlements that grew up in Nevada. Many names are in actuality railroad sidings or stops where the railroad would pick up workers, get water, and some work crews lived there. This was prior to electricity. If you know anything about Nevada history, you know that "boom and bust" was the way it went!
