Austin, Nevada

This was the next town of any real size westward on Nevada Route 50 also known as The Loneliest Road in America. I was surprised by the number of churches there, but I guess churches are usually built to last. Many of the other buildings in town have gone the way of the miners who once built them. During its silver mining heyday in 1863, the population reached 10,000. Today it sits at a humble 192.
