Metropolis, Nevada was settled in 1911 as a farming district, with the town
laid out and plans made for its agricultural future. Losing a water rights legal
battle forecasted the end of this community, with the final death blow occuring
in 1949 when the school closed. Metropolis is now known as Nevada's only
agricultural ghost town.
