The town was the first county seat of Owyhee County and was born to serve the rich mines in the vicinity. The Owyhee Avalanche, first newspaper in Owyhee County, started in Ruby City in 1865, but was moved to nearby Silver City just over a year later. The post office, which opened in 1864, closed in 1867. In 1867, the county seat was also moved to Silver City, along with the better buildings and the end was in sight for Ruby City.
