RALSTON was s minor station on the Las Vegas and Tonopah Railroad. A store and a saloon was all that was ever built there in 1907. A camp of about fifteen people was all that ever lived at Ralston when silica mining operations began in that same year. When the Bullfrog-Goldfield Railroad stopped running in 1928, all interest in the camp faded. Nothing remains at the site.
