Bullfrog Nevada!

Two prospectors, Frank Shorty Harris and E. L. Cross searched the southwest land for thier fortunes. Forty years after Nevada was admitted as a state, October 31, 1864. In 1904 they discovered a small hill containing quartz and streaks of gold.The only people they had to celebrate with was a family by the name of Beatty some five miles away. The same man for which Beatty is now named after.

As you look up the north from Bullfrog you can see the nearby town of Rhyolite. Within a few months after the discovery, there were some 2000 claims covering a 30 mile area. The most promising was the Montgomery Shoshone mine.

Here is a photo of the Ice House at Bullfrog.

Here and below are a front and rear photo of the Bullfrog jail.

Right south of Bullfrog is the Bullfrog- Rhyolite Cemetery. This monument with plaque reads: Here to the Blessed memory of those who sleep herein and to the remembrance of all others who came this way and opened up this great Nevada desert mining world by those who cared April 1959.
