Originating about 1868, Wells, Nevada focused around the Central Pacific Railroad. Chinese, Irish, and Italian immigrants were very instrumental in building the railroad and still today have a heavy emphasis on the Nevada economy. You may note that the current site of the Firehall used to be a large opium den of the Chinese. Also, after settlers had crossed the salt flats by rail, they then traveled to the area valleys for permanent residency. The picture below is an actual picture of Front Street dated to at least 1880.
