Nevada Personal Injury Lawyers Representing Accident Victims in Goodsprings
The arid community of Goodsprings, Nevada has an interesting past, all of which has transpired in the past century or so. It started with Joseph Good and his wayward cattle, who would regularly make the trek to drink from a spring nestled in the foothills of the Spring Mountains.
Goodsprings gained its notoriety as being a prosperous mining town early in the 20th Century, producing mass amounts of zinc, copper, lead, silver and gold over the years. However, after World War I, mining dwindled and families began to move away to seek new and more lucrative occupations, which today has now seen the town’s occupancy settle just above 200 inhabitants.
While Goodsprings may not be a popular place to live, it certainly has had its share of fame (wanted or otherwise) in the past.
The area boasts one of the oldest saloons in Nevada, the Pioneer Saloon, which is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of someone who was killed there by gunshot. It is in close proximity to where Carole Lombard’s plane, the TWA Flight 3, crashed into Potosi Mountain in 1942, and has most recently been featured in the video game “Fallout: New Vegas” as a post apocalyptic world.
Defending the Rights of Goodsprings’ Residents
