Gold Hill, Nevada
Gold Hill is even closer to the place where the Comstock silver lode was discovered in the 19th century. Virginia City was the main drag of the time, but Gold Hill lingers. It's mostly known now as a stop for the V & T Railroad, but there is a restaurant there. The railroad depot is one of the few buildings that has more or less made it into the 21st century. You can see evidence of the mining in the top half of the picture.
