TUNGSTONIA - (1915)
22 miles southeast of CR 2, 21 miles east of its junction with US 93. and 47 miles northeast of Ely. In the early 1880's, a camp named Glencoe grew around the Glencoe mine. Glencoe had a post office from 1891 to 1894. Tungsten was discovered in 1910 and a mill was built in 1915. Tungstonia was a tent and wood town that died when the price of tungsten dropped after World War I. Some ruins of the mill and buildings are left.
