Rhyolite is a ghost town located in Nye County, Nevada, United States. It was founded in 1904 and quickly grew during the gold rush, reaching a population of around 10,000 people. The town had several amenities, including schools, a hospital, and even a stock exchange. However, the gold rush was short-lived and by 1920, the population had declined to only a few hundred people. Today, Rhyolite is a popular tourist destination, known for its well-preserved ruins and historic buildings, including the Cook Bank Building, which is one of the best-preserved structures in the town. The town also has a large outdoor art gallery and is the site of the annual Rhyolite Ghost Town Photo Festival.
