Comments:

Tybo is an unincorporated community in Nye County, Nevada, United States. Tybo is 8 miles (13 km) northwest of U.S. Route 6 and 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Warm Springs. The community was established in the 1870s as a silver mining town. Its name came from the Shoshone word tybbabo or tai-vu, meaning “white man’s district”. The community prospered in the 1870s; its population neared 1000, and it had a school, post office, and newspaper by the end of the decade. A variant is Tyboe found on Wheeler’s map of 1871.
