Blair came into being in 1906 when The Pittsburg Silver Peak Gold Mining Company refused to pay outrageous prices for land to put up their mill. They surveyed a site 3 miles north of town near the companys gold mines and named it Blair. They established a 100-stamp mill, cyanide tanks and then constructed the 17 1/2 mile Silverpeak railroad from Blair to the Tonopah & Goldfield main line. A post office ran from 1906 to 1915. There was also numerous saloons, a 2 story hotel, and a population of about 700.

The mill closed in 1915 when low grade ore could no longer be milled profitably. The town was completely dead by 1916. Submitted by: Cat Evans Blair Courtesy Dolores Steele Old Car in Blair Courtesy Kurt Wenner. Myst - Myst Theme. Myst.
