Golden Arrow is a prime example for a short lived Nevada boom town. The discovery of gold in 1905 led to the formation of the Golden Arrow Mining Company in 1906. By 1907 several mining companies as well as individual mining claims were established and the camp included a hotel, a store and six saloons. But in 1908, only three years after the first discovery of gold, the boom fizzled and by 1909 the town was virtually deserted. Various efforts were made until the 1980's to resume mining but did not succeed. Today Golden Arrow is a ghost town, reduced to foundations and some remains on old mining equipment.
