McGill was the mill and smelter town for the Kennecott Copper mine near Ruth, Nevada. The McGill Ranch Post Office had been established in 1891. After the mill and smelter were built in 1906 - 1908, the town was briefly known as Smelter, before being renamed McGill, after the ranch. McGill was a company town.
