Bobbie’s Buckeye Bar is an abandoned brothel in Tonopah, Nevada. This remote town in the Nevada desert is the home of the Tonopah Test Range where the F-117 Stealth fighter was tested back in the 1980′s. The Pahrump Valley Times ran a short biography of the madam of this brothel back in 2005. A New York Times profile of Tonopah back in 1982 is also quite entertaining. My friend Troy Paiva photographed Bobbie’s brothel in 2004. I’ve visited Bobbie’s on a few photo trips through the Tonopah area to find it locked up tight.
Last month the door was open, so I took a look inside. The place was pretty cleaned out, and the roof is caving in. Take a look around the bar and the living room in the 360 tour below. Look for the white dots to view all 4 panoramas in the tour.
