The ghost town was inundated when Lake Mead first filled up in the 1930’s. At one point, it was flooded higher than 60 feet above the tallest structure. A Mormon settlement back in the day, it thrived as a stopping point between Los Angeles and Salt Lake City along the Arrowhead Trail, according to NPS. The remnants of the town can now be seen due to the lowering water levels of Lake Mead. Tourists can roam the ghost remains of an authentic western town.
