    Smile Jessup Nevada

    Does anyone happen to know if there anything left of Jessup Nevada? It has been years since I've been there, but at that time there was 5 or 6 building still standing Thank you.

    I've heard of it, but can't place it. Which county is it in?

    I was out there a two years ago and we didn't see any buildings, but we may not have made it all the way to the town site. I have some photos of what we seen, so I will have to see if I can find them on my hard drive.

    Where were the buildings located? North or south of I-80? I've poked around the area south of I-80, which is part of the 40 Mile Desert, and there's no buildings there.
    Rockhounder, or just a rockhead?

    Paher (NEVADA GHOST TOWNS & MINING CAMPS) says 4 miles northwest of I-80. I suppose it's one of the few in the state that has it's own signed exit off of I-80.

    I think that's why I have heard of it as I've been on 80 a few times. And the location is correct according to my maps and Google Earth. GE shows lots of ground disturbance (roads, plots, mining) but it doesn't have good enough resolution to see if there are any structures.
