The Lake Valley Photo Gallery


Lake Valley is currently a “ghost town” overseen by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.  In 1878 the first mining claims (silver) were made in the area and mining continued into the early 1900’s.  The photographs presented on this page are those of R. A. Barnes unless otherwise attributed.
