On the eastern edge of Death Valley National Park sits the ghost town of Rhyolite, Nevada. The town was settled almost as quickly as it collapsed. In 1905, Rhyolite started as a mining town and was toppled financially by the earthquake of 1906 and the ensuing financial panic of 1907. By 1920, the population of Rhyolite was nearly zero and the buildings stand in ruin today.
On the western edge of town sits the Goldwell Open Air Museum, an outdoor art gallery that boasts the odd ghostly Last Supper sculpture by Belgian artist Albert Szukalski.
