1936 (year uncertain) to 1990 (year uncertain)


From the Nye County, Nevada Photograph Collection (PH-00221) -- Series IV. Pahrump, Nevada -- Subseries IV.D. Wiley Family. The site where the buildings are located was known by Wiley and others as Dora's Place, where Dora Brown and her family resided. When Wiley purchased the Hidden Hills Ranch, Dora Brown lived in John Yount's cabin. When Wiley occupied the property in 1941, Dora Brown moved to the site pictured here. All but one of the buildings pictured were eventually burned down and the willow trees in the canyon were wiped out in a flash flood in the 1970s. The site was obviously occupied by Indians in the previous times, as evidenced by holes in rock formations nearby that are 6 to 8 inches in diameter and 12 to [8] inches deep, in which Indians ground grain. Rider on horse unidentified.
