Rhyolite, Nevada, a few miles west of Beatty, sprung up almost overnight after Shorty Harris and his partner Ernest Cross found gold in 1904. Rhyolite is located a little over six miles from the original gold discovery. It quickly grew into a city of brick and stone buildings. Today you can find several remnants of Rhyolite in its glory days, such as the old bank, schoolhouse, train station, and the famous bottle house.
