Amador and Coral City, Nevada

Amador and Coral City were founded in 1863.  Amador absorbed Coral City around 1864, but both towns were abandoned by 1869.

In 1864, J. M. Forsyth was given the right to "lay distributing water pipes in any of the public streets or alleys of the towns of Amador and Coral City" for a term of fifteen years.  No evidence has been found that this company built anything.
