Archaeology of Historic Railroad Towns and Depots Near Elko, NV

Andrea Ramhorst, Archaeologist for the Bureau of Land Management, will focus her talk on archaeological sites that represent historic railroad towns and depots on the Wells Field Office. These towns supported the Transcontinental Railroad lines that facilitated the movement of people and freight across the country at the end of the 19thCentury. In Nevada, these railroad lines were largely tied to the mining industry, and secondary railroad lines supported copper, silver, and gold mining.

Many of these sites are close to major roads, are threatened by looting, and will be incorporated into the Site Stewardship program for the Elko District.
