The Untold Story Of The Nevada City That Vanished Overnight

Today, the town of St. Thomas is nothing more than some crumbling remnants hiding out in the desert. Although fascinating, it’s hard to imagine that this town was once prosperous and that many early Nevadans called it home. It’s not immediately apparent why this town was left to crumble, but the story behind it is actually fascinating. In fact, this town seemed to disappear without a trace when it was completely flooded in the early 20th century. People almost forgot that it even existed—that is, until the water drained and the town reappeared.
