Near Tonopah in Nye County, Nevada — The American Mountains (Southwest)
Tybo, in its infancy, was known as a peaceful camp, but later refuted that claim when there occurred racial strife between the Irish, Cornish and Central Europeans; Later these groups banded together to drive from the town a company of Chinese woodcutters.
The town was not unique in having three residential sections each with its ethnic group. However, all children went to the same brick school.
