Its location made Ledlie a natural shipping center as soon as the railroad arrived in 1880. As result of demands for freight teams, as many as 250 mules were kept there. By 1890, however, the volume of freight had dropped drastically and Ledlie’s importance faded. When the Nevada Central Railroad folded for good in 1938, Ledlie ceased to exist A town never really materialized since most workers lived in Austin. Today only a small collapsed wooden building and a solitary telegraph pole mark the site.
