Jesse Christensen home
Per patron comments, this home was one of two “twin” houses that stood next to each other on Knob Hill in Rhyolite before it was moved to Beatty. Patron also commented that Jesse Christensen was the Beatty postmaster, and that an outline of the Exchange Club is visible on the right.
Home of Jesse Christensen. Beatty, Nevada, where he first saw her.

I believe this house was moved from Rhyolite. It was one of two 'twin' houses that stood next to each other on 'Knob Hill' in Rhyolite. The other twin currently stands in the 100 block of North 1st Street in Beatty. I don't know what became of this one though.

Thank you for this interesting tidbit! We've updated the record.

This was on Main Street. On the right you can see the outline of the Exchange Club which still stands. Jesse Christensen was a Beatty postmaster (possibly the second). At the time the post office was in the Exchange Club so he didn't have far to go to work. This spot is now a parking lot.
