Rhyolite, Graveyard of Dreams: Camp of Confidence
Camp of Confidence
Called the "camp of confidence" and full of "rainbow chasers" by others. 
After Shorty Harris and Ed Cross' discovery of the red speckled rock that looked a bit like the back of a bull frog (which gave the Bullfrog district its name) dozens of miners flocked to Rhyolite.  The town grew so quickly due to stocks in the mines selling rapidly and adding to the excitement and fervor concerning the town.
“By 1907 this thriving town of only two years had 6000 hustling inhabitants and possessed a modern telephone exchange, three water companies, three ice plants, electric street lights, board of trade, hotels with private baths, three railroads, four bands, dozens of saloons, opera house, symphony orchestra, four competing newspapers and two locally printed magazines. Block after block of substantial wood and stone structures had been built and wide smooth streets were lined with comfortable and commodious homes. A modern city developed before any of its highly touted mines had begun to operate in the black.”
