1. The Pioneer Saloon Marker
Inscription.  George Fayle moved to southern Nevada from Calico, California in 1904. He settled at Goodsprings Junction, which was later renamed for his wife Jean. In 1912, he moved to Goodsprings. He built the Pioneer Saloon in 1913, later building the Fayle General Store and the Fayle Hotel. Through he died in the flu epidemic of 1918, his vision lived on through his saloon, still a center of community life. Later owners have also affected the community, none more so then "Poppa Don" Hedrick, who raised money for local causes and ran a local ambulance service.
 
Erected 2001 by Queho Posse, Chapter 1919, E Clampus Vitus.
