Palmetto, Nevada is a ghost town in Esmeralda County, in the U.S. state of Nevada. Palmetto was founded and established in 1866, the time when silver was found. Although the town was abandoned in a year, folks returned in 1906 when mines were reopened and several businesses started up as well. However, this lasted only a few months as well, as people abandoned Palmetto for Blair. The same kind of attempt at a comeback was made in 1920 with the same results. All that stands today are the remains of old buildings.[1]
