    Default Town With Four Names

    While obsessively reading back issues of Desert Magazine, I came across an article, Town With Four Names, page 33. According to the article, this town was called White Horse, McClanesville, Ora, and finally Olinghouse, in Nevada, forty miles east of Reno, nine miles west of Wadsworth. I went and looked for the place at Ghosttowns.com, and while there's a White Horse, its in southern Elko County. So, does anyone know about this town now? In 1969, three families still lived there, and the inference I make from the article is Wadsworth isn't a ghost town.
