Mesquite in Clark County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Abbott Way Station
On this site was one of the first rest-over businesses in the Virgin Valley. Here an early version of an adobe brick house was used as a small grocery store with a separate wash house that had shower and laundry facilities, and a way station (campground) for freighters and travelers. Hay was also sold to those traveling by horse drawn wagons and buggies.
Erected by City of Mesquite. (Marker Number 3.)
