Lamoille in Elko County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
John Walker and Thomas Waterman first settled the area in 1865: Waterman named the valley after his native Vermont. In 1868, Walker erected the Cottonwood Hotel, store and blacksmith shop in the valley, and the settlement became known as the "Crossroads". Here wagons were repaired and food and supplies could be obtained. The original buildings, and the more recent 20-bedroom Lamoille Hotel, creamery, flour mill, and dance hall are gone.
