Adelphi Nevada History

There is nothing to be found in my usual resources and the only Adelphi I can find is in Eureka County, Nevada

There is a reference in The Yerington Ruster about Henry Streeter came down from Adelhi Monday for a load of provisions but this is too far northwest to be the Nye County Aldelphi.

I found a reference to the Adelphi Mining Company but don’t see that they owned any claims in Nye County.

I found one reference in newspapers that states: Rev. C. W. Eldridge of Cincinnati, while delivering a speech in favor of the “drys” at Adelphi, a small town near here last night, was given a shower of rotten eggs. [Tonopah Daily Bonanza, Sunday, April 18, 1908, Page 1]

While the information is hard to find that won’t stop us from looking for more on this mining district.

Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!
