mile west of Kimberly. The Cumberland-Ely Copper Co. owned the Veteran shaft and the town did not last long. Veteran became the western terminus of the Nevada Northern Railway. Once, the town had about fifty buildings including; a three-story office, boarding house, and several bunkhouses.  The land the town was on was required to further mining exploration and the town was in the way.  Most of the buildings were moved to Ruth in 1914 and in 1957, the few remaining buildings were moved to New Ruth.
