Pictures from Fairview Station.
DSCN1635  Someone poured concrete, marked an "X", and wrote "1875." We're not that easily fooled. DSCN1637  Stone in the shape of Nevada. I win. DSCN1639  Lots of stuff like this around. Don't bother them, they won't bother you. DSCN2596
DSCN2565  This is the actual site. It's covered with exciting historical debris. DSCN2566  Many barrel hoops laying about DSCN2567  The following will be photos of exiciting, rusted metal. You may see something cool! DSCN2568
DSCN2569 DSCN2570 DSCN2571  Ooh, is that a square nail? DSCN2572
DSCN2573 DSCN2574  Lots of hoops.... DSCN2575 DSCN2576
DSCN2577 DSCN2578  Hole in cap can lid. DSCN2579 DSCN2580  Square nail. Wire (round) nails) came into common use around 1890 so this is probably from before that.

DSCN2585 DSCN2586 DSCN2587  Bottle bottom DSCN2588  Here's a nice example of a hole in cap can. They were made from 1820-World War I. Thsi seam looks unsoldered. Hmmmmm.

NVGhostTownMiningCampAtlasPaher  From Stan Paher's Ghost Town Atlas Search Map  Our search map, which also shows Ken's suggestion. Shamberger  Shamberge suggests it was near where he has "Fairfield" marked. We don't think so. SS to FS Possible Route  This is one possible route from Sand Springs. But then again, maybe not.
