Whisky Spring Nevada
Whisky Spring Nevada Overview
Whisky Spring was a station located on the northern end of Whisky Flat in Mineral County, Nevada that served as a lodging and eating stop for those who traveled on the Bodie-Canderlaria Road.
Not a lot is found about the old town with the first newspaper article I can find is from 1912 and in 1919 the camp made the news when a resident wandered many miles away and took his own life in a tent. There are earlier references but it appears they are referring to the actual spring and not the town.
Only the spring remains.

Whisky Spring Nevada History
Mining operations below the station on the flat were limited but important enough after 1882 to warrant the construction of a small furnace to smelt silver copper ore.
