Looks like some older ruins were used to create a new building- in this case, a handy car port.
The ruins of a large, two-room structure on the south side of the road.
Snarling Dobermans, machine gun nests, and barbed wire fences protect the old Unionville School.
Built in 1871 for $2,500, and it continued to operate until 1955. One teacher, M.A. Leonard, arrived in 1896 and taught school with only a short interruption until 1955. The school is now privately owned.
Newer building, or old building converted?
A couple of cabins from the old days.
Just in case you thought today's Unionville residents were Okies living in burned-out Airstream trailers, this guy has a brick and wrought iron fence worth more than your whole house. Unionville boasts a fine bed and breakfast, too.
A lonely cabin
Continuing up the cabin to the mines requires a little clearance and an affinity for "Nevada pin striping" We suggest a narrow vehicle such as an ATV.
