Cedar Spring Nevada History

Cedar Spring’s history is a tale of humble beginnings in the silver mining industry. Its existence, overshadowed by more successful contemporaries, reflects the challenges and uncertainties of mining endeavors.

There are many newspaper articles starting in the 1860s but at this time we are not sure which Cedar Spring they are referring to without more context.

I searched the NBMG Digital Library and nothing has been recorded with them on the mining district.
