Ghost Towns & Mines: Blair, NV 2019

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Historically, the USA state of Nevada was closely tied to the mining industry.  In the 19th and early 20th centuries, mining finds created instant towns, some of which were subsequently abandoned.  In this drone video by ray dunakin, you'll get a bird's eye view of one of these Nevada ghost towns.  It's called Blair, and it's situated roughly midway down the diagonal section of Nevada's western border.  Blair emerged out of the silver strike in nearby Tonopah in the early 1900's; by 1920 it was a ghost town.
