On a recent trip to an old U.S. Army Airfield in Nevada (story to be posted later) I took a short side trip to a small “ghost town” located in Lida, Nevada and here are the photos of some of the remaining buildings standing.
Lida was first founded in the late 1860′s as an outgrowth of the Aurora boom. The townsite of Lida was laid out in 1872 and on April 31, 1873, the United States Postal Service authorized a post office to be operated as Lida, Nevada. The post office finally closed December 14, 1918.
Lida was home to over 500 people in the early 1900′s with 30 various mining companies operating in the area. The townsite included a bank, saloon, post office, general store, school and other entities but today there are only a few buildings left.
Today is the 72nd anniversary of the attack at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and we should all remember the great sacrifices that the men and women of the armed services have incurred for our freedom!
