Joy Nevada History

(T24N R57E Section 23)  In 1869 silver was discovered in Water Canyon. Joy formed about six years later in a ravine between Bald Mountain and South Bald Mountain.   Isolated Joy was supplied by Elko and Halleck, both about 80 miles to the north.   A post office was established in 1905 to serve the little camp of fifty miners.   It was not profitable to continue mining here and the camp faded away.
