Goldfield, NV

Not quite a ghost town yet, Goldfield, NV is still home to some 400 people, down from a high of some 30,000 at the turn of the last century. Of course, the mines were still giving forth a lot of gold back then, $48 million worth in 1918. Today, it's just a spot in the road with some weathered buildings surrounding a rather handsome courthouse, though Dusty's Roadhouse will serve you a pretty good veggie burger if you're hungry.
