Does anyone know the exact location of Diamond City, Nevada. Diamond Springs and the Phillipberg Charcoal Kiln are easy to locate on the side of the Diamond Range and I know Diamond City is nearby, but where?

That would put in at the bottom of the range, near the north/south road. Did I drive right by it if I took the north/south road at the base of Diamond Range? Is that where the two kiln remains are? If you look at a good map of Diamond Valley there are wide streets laid out. Phillipsberg
Kiln would be about 12 1/2 Street if they went up the mountain. Where would Diamond City be with
the Street system?

Diamond City would be between 13th and 14th streets. There is a paragraph and some some pictures on Shawn Hall's website.

I have no idea when these pictures were taken but they pretty much show the site as it was the last time I was there in the middle 70's.

The Diamond post office was active from Sep 1874 to Jul 1884. In Apr 1888 it reopened as the Carp post office. This P.O. was closed in Jan 1889. (ref GNIS)

Well, according to the GNIS, which compiled data from Helen S. Carlson's book, 'Nevada Place Names, A Geographical Dictionary', Diamond City was located about 0.65 miles north of the kiln, about where the smelter ruins are.
