Unionville, Nevada

Unionville was founded in 1861 and is pretty much a ghost town now.

The Buena Vista Water Company was incorporated in 1863 by Wm. A. Holcomb, J.S. Henning, and J. M. Gray "for the purpose of supplying the town of Unionville and additions thereto with fresh and pure water."  No evidence has been found that this company built anything.
