From the Nye County, Nevada Photograph Collection (PH-00221) -- Series V. Smoky Valley, Nevada and Round Mountain, Nevada -- Subseries V.A. Carver, Carver-Duhme, and Carver-Book Families (Smoky Valley). The facility was of modular construction. The Carvers purchased a building from Wallace Bird and moved it from Round Mountain to their ranch, where it served as the bar. Carver traded Bird hay for the building. Carver purchased another building in Monarch, located just south of Belmont. The building was moved to the Carver ranch by the Boni brothers, and it became the Carvers' living quarters. The dance hall was constructed in 1949 and is visible to the right of the porch. The Carvers tried to have dances on a regular basis, but holding them proved to be a lot of work.
