There were some buildings left on the main drag a few years ago, but since the advent of gambling in Central City (only about a mile down the hill), a lot of people have been moving into the area, so there may have been some changes. Go to this web site: http://gowest.coalliance.org/ -- this is the Denver Public Library Western History Department's on-line photo archive. Do a keyword search for "Nevadaville Colorado" & you will find a whole bunch of great photos of the town. Sorry, none of them show the Kramer Saloon, but it could be one of the buildings shown. Hope this helps!

My site has the town of Nevadeville. I was there just a couple months ago. Spoke to an elderly lady. She and her husband own most of the buildings and want to sell them. She gave me a personal tour. They live in Denver and only come up to Nevadaville on warm weekends. They also run the general store.

Here is the url for some recent photos of Nevadaville

What about the picture on this site of the small building in the Masonic Block? It says it was the Kraemer Saloon...Is that the one you seek? OJ Oooops... I see you know about it.

That saloon also has a history of a murder that took place in the late 1930's. If I remember correctly it did not happen in the saloon but outside. I think it was called the Bon Ton saloon.

There are also many photos if you search for NEVADAVILLE in GOOGLE IMAGES. I too have been there but that was maybe 25 years ago.
