This Town In Nevada Was One Of The Most Dangerous Places In The Nation In The 1870s

Nevada is full of places which were at one time quintessentially Western. The Wild West was thriving in the Silver State during the 19th century, and many of these rough and tumble towns still remain to this day. Some of these towns still bear marks of their wild history. However, there is one town that gained a reputation for being one of the most violent and dangerous places in the entire country during this time. It may look quaint and unassuming today, but during the 1870s it was one of the most dangerous places in the country.
