Belleville, Mineral County, Nevada.

Recommended Posts

I’ve explored the parts of Belleville closest to the highway. One of these days I hope to walk the narrow gauge spur to the mill and atop the big support wall. Maybe do the old ore haul road between Candelaria and Belleville.

I heartily recommend Hugh A. Schamburger’s fine book on the history of Candelaria, Belleville, Columbus and Marietta. It also goes quite a bit into the water supply history as well. Schamburger was the state’s water manager for many years. He wrote ten books, I think, about Nevada’s boomtowns, each comprehensive. Since they were all written in the 1950s theough early 1970s, they have photographs of each town in far better shape than today.
