The Ghost of Treasure Hill
by Betty Orr

On Treasure Hill
A ghostly wind
Rattles slat and sage.
And every silvered
Sash and door,
Is sanded smooth with age.

                            Who traveled here?
                            Who wept at night?
                            Who bore the dreadful breeze?
                            Who burned for ore?
                            Who drilled at night?
                            Who prayed on trembling knees?

On Treasure Hill
The flowers stay small
Nestled near the stones.
And scattered on a
Windswept spot,
Rock mounds now cover bones.

                            Who watched from here?
                            Who mourned a child?
                            Who swayed against the wind?
                            Who counted days,
                            And then, the hours,
                            The stage that rattled in?

On Treasure Hill
I sifted soil.
I found an earring part.
I found a dish, a
Broken toy.
I guess a broken heart.
Do you have what it
takes to leave the city
and come on out to
Really Rural Nevada?
Come on out. We're
waiting for you! You'll
be glad you did

Hillside Letters

The Nevada Sesquicentennial Commission
would like your help in trying to get the
"Hillside Letters" in each community
around the Silver State refurbished in time
for Nevada Day on October 31, 2014.

This Official Legacy Project involves
repainting existing letters, and in certain
instances, rebuilding the letters. Because
this is a statewide project, with no dedicated
funding, each community would be
responsible for the letters in their area.

In some communities, the letters have been
maintained by various organizations,
including the local high schools, alumni
groups, 4-H Clubs, service clubs, or local
government entities. We would also like
information on the history of these letters.

For further information, please contact:
