In the 1920's, Art COLEMAN relocated to Gold Butte. He reassembled a home purchased from Arizona and eventually teamed up with William GARRETT. They lived in this area for over forty years. Their graves are located in an iron enclosed area located at what was once the back of the home COLEMAN had made. The home is gone now, and little is left except for two small cemetery squares which appear to have been the foundation for perhaps a store house. Over the years, COLEMAN and GARRETT's home was "the" social place due to GARRETT's skill with a still. There are remains of a well, but not much else!
