    Re: ghost town nevada

    Rhyolite, Nevada is a famous ghost town. It is located on both private and government (public) land. Use caution when removing objects from that townsite. If you remove something historic (old) from the portion that is on government land, you could face criminal charges if caught. There is an old saying that usually applies to wilderness areas, but it also applies these days to federal lands..."take only photographs and leave only footprints." Be aware and take care.
