Ashton Nevada History

After scouring old newspapers and books, I didn’t find anything of significance to share about the ghost town of Ashton which was a stop on the Tonopah and Tidewater Railroad (T&T).

There are no remains of the area to show its existence.

From the resource, A Cultural Resource Overview for the Amargosa Mohave Basin Planning Units:

A list of the stops along the Tonopah and Tidewater in 1939, at the end of its career, includes Ludlow, Broadwell, Mesquite, Crucero, Rasor, Soda, Baker, Silver Lake, Riggs, Valjean, Dumont, Sperry, Acme, Tecopa, Zabriskie, Shoshone, Gerstley, Evelyn, Death Valley Junction, Bradford, Scranton, Jenifer, Leeland, Ashton, Carrara, and Beatty. Scranton was the last stop in California. The more important stops on the line were Ludlow, Silver Lake, Tecopa, Shoshone, and Death Valley Junction.

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!
