EDDYVILLE NEVADA
Who is Eddy?

Unoccupied Ghost Town
Mineral County
Circa 1932

The Eddyville town site remains are tucked deep in a crevice of the Pilot Mountains. The site was probably not a very popular one among prospectors who had been digging here since the late 1800’s. It was not until May of 1932 that a decent ore vein was discovered here which prompted some form of organized mining. Eddyville had become a company town of sorts, housing workers who explored her deep vertical mine shafts. Most of today’s remains consist of fallen planks of wood that once comprised a residence or building of sorts. There are several mines located above the former town site; the most notable is a deep vertical shaft that is now surrounded by wire fencing for safety, its wood ladders and landings rotting below the earth’s surface.

Mine records kept by NBMG indicate 75 prospectors residing here by the fall of 1932, and 2 ton shipments of extracted ore per week being shipped to a smelter in Shelby Ca. for processing. It is unknown what year Eddyville became a ghost town.
