John T Overbury Building
The John T Overbury building, a three-story structure, opened in June 1907. The cost of the
building is said to have been $50,000. It was built of rock and concrete and had modern plumbing, fire plugs and
fire hoses on every floor, electric wiring and a 5,000 gallon water tank on the roof. The building was located on
Golden Street midway between Broadway and Colorado across from the Porter Store.
The First National Bank of Rhyolite, Nevada was housed in the Overbury Building prior to
locating in the John S Cook & Co. building. The building also housed a jewelry store and various offices.
