Old Stone Building, at the confluence of San Juan Creek and an unnamed side drainage, Toiyabe Range, Nevada. The ruin isn't even marked on the USGS 7.5' topo map. I suspect it's mining related--there are some old mines and prospects a bit farther up San Juan Creek, now considered part of the Washington District, but there was also some pre-1848 activitiy (i.e., Mexican or Spanish), and this may date from then.

It's always interesting to find places like this. Looks as if it's drystone construction.

Yes, and local timber for the lintels--I'll post some details at some point. I'm sure it's 19th century, but whether it's pre-1848--that's the interesting question!
