ⓘ Pine Grove, Nevada

In 1866, gold-bearing rock was discovered in the area by William Wilson. The Wheeler Mine was established in the next year. Early settlers named the camp after the nearby Pine Grove Hills.

In 1868 a post office was opened, together with the weekly newspaper. The population at that time was 200. Two steam stamp mill was built along with three arrastras, processed silver and gold ore. The camp reached its peak population in the early 1870-ies of 600 inhabitants.

The village, at its height, was divided into five sections and stretched for a mile. He offered five saloons, three hotels, several stores, blacksmith shops, a dance hall, hairdresser, school, stables, and two doctors office. Pine grove has been a regional center of power. Two decompositions mill made in 1882, and the production has been reliable in 1880. After the economic depression in the United States in 1893, mining gradually declined.

Work started again in the mines between 1900 and 1910, but the production never reached the activity of the 1870s and 1880s years. There was limited search in the area in the early 1900s, but the mine was closed in 1918. The other inhabitants of the city left the Pine grove in the 1930-ies.
