    : DIRECTIONS

    : Best reached from Tonopah. At junction of US6 and US95, turn onto US6 and head east 5.5 miles to junction with Nevada 376. Turn north on Nevada 375 and travel 13.5 miles to Nevada 82. Travel this highway 22.9 miles to Belmont.



    : The road was part paved and part well bladed dirt when I last visited in 1984. It might well be paved all the way by now, or it might still be paved/dirt.



    : There are plenty of ruins to see in Belmont, as well as occupied homes.



    : A good book to get on Nevada's ghost towns is Stan Paher's NEVADA GHOST TOWNS & MINING CAMPS.



    : Also check out Shawn Hall's website http://members.xoom.com/_XOOM/ghosttowner/index.html for history and photos.

    : Hi

    : I have this town as asubject to report on. There is limited information on its formation and historical significance.

    : Belmont is about 45 miles east of Tonopah. If you are in Las Vegas, just take Highway 82 south bound and there is the emphamus Belmont. Chect out the courthouse that used to be the seat of Nye County. Back in the day it ws known for its silver and lead ore. Good luck

I have it and several other ghost towns on a l l/2-hour video I made called "Ghost Towns of the Mother Lode" It's $l5 plus $3 for postage. I also have 2 videos of Oregon's ghost towns. We have about 50 of them here.
