Blair Nevada, State Bank and Trust, 1907



Blair, Nevada was created in 1906 to circumvent real estate speculators from Silver Peak, Nevada, whose inflated prices caused the Pittsburg-Silver Peak Gold Mining Company to create Blair some three miles or so from Silver Peak. Blair was basically dead and gone in 1917 but there are still some cool ruins out there to show that it was once a thriving city.
