Goodsprings, Nevada

General Store



The Goodsprings General Store in Nevada, built in 1913 by George Fayle, has a significant history tied to the local mining industry. Originally a cafe for miners, it transitioned over time to serve multiple community needs, including a real estate office and campaign headquarters. Now a grocery store, it's notable for its pressed tin exterior, a feature shared with the adjacent Pioneer Saloon, Nevada's oldest operating saloon.

The site's history dates back to 1899 with Sam Yount's store, evolving through ownership changes and the rise and fall of local mining activities. The area's development was greatly influenced by the mining boom, peaking in population during the early 20th century under Fayle's entrepreneurial influence.
