Entry Description:

These images are all from a single structure in remote central Nevada, the Belmont Court House. Belmont itself is not yet a ghost town. The court house is of historical significance and is in remarkable condition considering that is has been abandoned for a century. The graffiti alone makes it worth preservation as most of it was written by central Nevada locals decades ago. Much if it is written in longhand, and there is almost no profanity. The structure itself is beautiful, with high windows and ceilings, and pastel blue plaster. The light and feel of the high desert and surrounding mountains pervade the structure.
