“once an important milling & mining town”
Goodsprings was a settlement in the hills seven miles west of Jean. It served as an important town for milling or from the surrounding mines. This or would then be transported by wagon to Jean where it was loaded on trains. Today only a few landmarks are left. The town known as Jean on U.S. Highway 15 in Clark County in southern Nevada is the junction to state highway 53 that leads to the ghost town of Goodsprings. The town has named after a Mr. Joseph Good who headquartered his cattle raising operation there. At first the site was known as Good's Springs but eventually was called Goodsprings. It was a mining camp with a hotel, a saloon that is still standing and in operation, and a general store. The end of World War I also saw the end of Goodsprings as a mining town. But there are still landmarks of the town to satisfy the ghosttowner. A post-apocalyptic Goodsprings appears in Fallout: New Vegas which acts as the game's starting point. Some of the houses in-game are modeled after the real ones.
This is an amazing place to visit! You can become a certified card holding asshole at the pioneer saloon. My bother lives there and it's definitely an awesome place to explore!
Very cool little town! Like many who visit the town, I found out about it from Fallout: New Vegas. After being featured in that game, Goodsprings became something of a mecca for Fallout fans, and I don't think any of them are disappointed when they get there. Very authentic, rustic western beauty, not just for fans of the game!
