Nevada's economy is currently based on mining, ranching and most importantly tourism. In the past mining was Nevada's principal economic activity especially when the state was admitted to the Union on October 31, 1864. In the late 19th Century and early 20th Century, Nevada went through several boom and bust cycles fueled by new mines opening and then closing when the ore ran out. This left many Ghost Towns that were abandoned and several that were not completely abandoned such as Virginia City and Goldfield.

This pattern, in a some ways continues today. The impact of the Great Recession on the construction industry has caused the demand for drywall to drop significantly. This caused dry wall manufacturer USG to close its plant in Empire Nevada. By June 2011 the town of Empire was completely abandoned making it the latest ghost town in Nevada.
