GHOST TOWN NAMESAKE: Cobre, Nevada: 
The Spanish word for copper. Cobre was the settlement at the terminus of the Nevada Northern Railway serving the rich copper mines in the area. Cobre boomed in 1906 when the Western Pacific Railroad moved its headquarters from Winnemucca to Cobre. In 1948 the Southern Pacific Railroad abandoned Cobre as a shipping point. The post office closed in May of 1956 and Cobre came to an end.
