Old stamp mill in the ghost town of Berlin in central Nevada. Berlin-Ichthyosaur Sate Park is called a hybrid park since it consists of the old town and some ancient fossil grounds in the nearby hills. Berlin in one of several towns that sprung up after a major ore vein called Union Ledge was discovered in the 1850’s. A few residents remain in some of the other towns but history records Berlin as abandoned since 1911. It’s remarkable how much of it remains, this is largely due to some pretty heroic preservation efforts. For me, ghost towns hold a particular fascination and this one was no exception.
