Porter Store

-A A +A
1906. Golden St.
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

This one-story store reveals the high-quality stonework found in some of the buildings in Rhyolite. Though the rest of the structure is gutted, the facade of coursed rock-faced ashlar is largely intact. A large opening in the facade, supported by a concrete lintel and cast iron column, accommodated plate glass windows and a front entrance. Side walls are made of rough stone. One of the last businesses to leave Rhyolite, the store remained open until about 1915.
