   We have heard that things are changing here, ghost townolgist's and tourist are no longer hung or beaten by the locals, and even a McDonalds may be opening up here soon.
  Originally known as Hornsilver, investors changed the name to Gold Point in 1929. This town was once the home of a Nevada Senator Harry Wiley who stayed on to operate Gold Point's last business; a small grocery store/gas station.
  The town of Hornsilver once boasted a newspaper; The Herald, the usual saloons, stores, and a population of between 1000-2000 during 1905-06 which later dwindled to about half a dozen. The big bonanza gold mine was the Orleans Mine. Poor milling processes and constant litigation over the the rights of the mill to operate, killed the town.
