The Owl Pharmacy bottle from Seven Troughs is unarguably one of the great American ghost town bottles. Seven Troughs was a mining community in central Nevada that was a late-stage discovery, coming on the heels of the Tonopah-Goldfield discoveries. The camp didn't get its start until 1907, and struggled until about 1909, when so much gold was found that it exploded in growth. Unfortunately, a rare flood came crashing down the canyon in 1912, wiping out the town. Today, little is left except the occasional piece of purple glass and a rusty piece of a tin can. There are two of the sixteen ounce bottles known. This one is the only one of the two in completely original condition. It was dug by Walt Walker in Hazen, Nevada, the site of one of Nevada's last hangings. X-Holabird. See Holabird, V2, pp239-241. City: Seven Troughs State: Nevada Inventory Number: 39527
