    • Abstract:
      The article offers information on Tuscarora, a ghost town in Nevada. It recalls that prospectors Steve and John Beard discovered gold in the area in 1867 while miner Charles M. Benson suggested the name of the town after USS Tuscarora. The population of its Chinatown has once been second to the Chinatown population in San Francisco, California. A mass exodus from town occurred after it was rumored that there was a new gold discovery in the Wood River region in Idaho.
