The decline of tiny Gabbs, Nevada shows what can happen when the Postal Service fails rural AmericaThe town of Gabbs was founded by a private magnesium mining company in 1941. During its heyday in the 1970s, there were more than 1,500 residents. Today, it has a population of only 75. There was once a grocery store. A hair salon. A laundromat. But that’s all gone now. Houses in various states of disrepair host a mostly elderly population. Whatever public venues remain open rely mostly on volunteers’ goodwill: the community library, the school, the senior center.
