Smelterville Nevada History and Photos

2 miles southwest of McGill. One of McGill's three fringe towns, Ragdump, Steptoe City, and Smelterville, contained saloons, dance halls, gambling dens and cribs.   Smelterville, along with Ragdump,  was shut down in 1914 because of public outcry against the immoral activities of the town.  Tailings now cover the site of Smelterville.
