Goldfield, Nevada, used to be a mining town with many gold mines. By 1904 there lived 30,000 citizens and it was the largest city in Nevada. The local Tex Rickard’s Northern Saloon had a bar so long it required 80 bartenders to run it. In 1920s gold began to run out. In 1923 a fire destroyed most of the town's wooden buildings. Today about 400 people still live in Goldfield, that became a ghost town.
