Ghost Town USA Column Index for Arizona

Arizona was one of the last states to actually be admitted into the Union, joining in 1912. Prior to that time it was a rip-snorting territory. Arizona has a rich heritage of copper, silver and gold mining, as well as early Spanish colonization attempts. Stage lines and highways crisscrossed the state, and agricultural communities were started and failed. The Grand Canyon State also "hosted" two of the ten World War Two Japanese Internment Camps.

 

Arizona has a rich ghost town heritage dating back to the days of the Spanish and up to and including present day communities that are dying. Even though the state is experiencing tremendous growth, there are still around a thousand ghost towns out there waiting for the followers of Ghost Town USA to find and explore. Listed below are just a few of those 1000 or so ghost towns that await YOU in Arizona...The Grand Canyon State.

 

If you know of any ghost towns in the Grand Canyon State that are not listed here, or know the current status of towns listed with little information, please contact us.  The towns listed here are just a tiny portion of the 1000+ ghost towns I have listed in my AZ files.

 

Some of the vignettes below contain specific words that are listed on our DEFINITIONS page.  If you are unfamiliar with the meaning of the word in a ghost town sense, click on the link and scroll down to that term.  You can use the BACK button on the browser to return to this page.

 

In July 2010, I took a journey across a small portion of Arizona on OLD US Highway 80 and that journey across that dead highway is being chronicled here.  The first portion of that journey was our Ghost Town of the Month for August 2013, and the second leg was our Ghost Town of the Month for October 2013.

 

HELP!  (NEW FEATURE) Please check here to find a list of ghost towns that various contacts are looking for.  IF you have any information on these places please e-mail me and I can respond back to those looking for info on these ghosts.

BISBEE

Cochise Co.

Bisbee is a class E copper-mining town that is still an active community of 5575 people (2010 census), a magnificent museum to the glory days of mining, when it was booming city of 35,000 people.  It remains as one of Arizona's best preserved historic mining towns and is a must see. Narrow streets are lined with colorful buildings of all descriptions -- some open, some closed.

See our BISBEE page for additional details.

 

This is one of the towns featured in my newest book, GHOST TOWNS: Yesterday & TodayTM.

BRUNCKOW CABIN

Cochise Co.

The melted adobe wall ruins of this famous class B cabin site sit about 600 feet south of the Charleston road at the junction with Brunckow Road, 1.5 miles east of the San Pedro River, eight miles southwest of Tombstone.

BUMBLEBEE

Yavapai Co.

Today’s Bumble Bee is a privately owned re-creation, but is open to the public. The original Bumble Bee on the same site dates to 1879 when it was a stage stop on the Phoenix-Prescott line. There was also some gold mining. A group of the remaining buildings are part of a re-created 1960s era tourist ghost town.  It is on Bumblebee/Crown King Road, just 1.5 AIR miles west of I-17.  It is reached off I-17 via Bumblebee Road EXIT, thence about 5.5 miles north on that road.

CHARLESTON

Cochise Co.

Charleston sits on the west bank of the San Pedro River, 3/4 of a mile north where the Charleston Road crosses the river, 9.4 miles southwest of Tombstone. The site of this 1880s class B milling town is owned by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and is part of the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area, as is MILLVILLE (another class B site), on the east bank of the river, directly opposite Charleston.  A post office operated here Apr 17, 1879-Oct 24, 1888.  The town was a ghost town by 1899.

Christmas

 

Gila Co.

This old copper mining town is located about a mile west of State Highway 77 eight miles northeast of Winkelman and south of Globe.  It was famous for its CHRISTMAS cancellations on stamps. 

See our Christmas page for additional details.

CLIFTON

Greenlee Co.

Like Bisbee and Jerome, Clifton is a still-living class E copper-mining town, which draws on visitors rather than the wealth of its now closed mines. Unlike the former two towns, it is quiet and low key. Clifton’s long streets off US 191 are filled with colorful, historic structures, especially in the upper part of town, where the old downtown follows Chase Creek Street for a little over ¾ of a mile. Some of the nearby mining towns include Morenci (old and new) and Metcalf.  Clifton is the county seat of Greenlee County and in 2010 still claimed 3311 people.

GOLDROAD

Mohave Co.

This wonderful old class B gold-mining town lies alongside old US 66 several miles north of Oatman, and 25 miles west of Kingman. In June 2012 it was privately owned and posted against trespass due to an active gold mining operation on site.  However, the many roofless, rock-walled ruins are highly visible alongside the public highway and there are places to pull out to view them.  

See our GOLDROAD page for additional details.

 

This is one of the towns featured in my newest book, GHOST TOWNS: Yesterday & TodayTM.

Jerome

Yavapai Co.

Jerome is a fascinating class E former copper-mining town perched on the switchbacks of SH 89A, midway between Prescott and Sedona. This reborn town is a haven for artists and other urban refugees, but still maintains its pride for the past. Just don't call it a ghost town! See our Jerome page for additional details.

Hidden in the heart of the Black Mountains, this class D gold-mining town dates back to the early 1900s. Straddling old US 66, about 25 miles southwest of Kingman, this town is packed with a couple hundred citizens, scores of burros, and many picturesque buildings.  It is one of Arizona’s premier remaining mining towns and has rolled out the welcome mat for tourists and ghost towners.

POSTON

La Paz Co.

 

(formerly part of Yuma Co.)

About 13 miles southwest of Parker, on Indian Route (IR) 1 (Mohave Rd/Parker-Poston Road) in the heart of the Colorado River Indian Reservation. POSTON was a World War II relocation center for Americans of Japanese ancestry, and was active from May 1942 until November 1945. I have not been to the site, so don’t know what if anything remains of the old camp.  It is in a rich agricultural area, so they may have been plowed under.  Poston Relocation Center was divided into three portions, and those are: Poston I, II, III.  The camp reached its maximum population of over 17,500 in September 1942.  All three portions of the camp were located along IR 1.  The community of Poston had a 2010 population of 285, and only four of its 85 housing units were vacant.

 

POSTON I:

Poston I is the present community of Poston and straddles the highway where Poston Road crosses it.  The original relocation center was on the west side of the highway and contained 36 residential blocks, each containing 14 barracks and associated support buildings for the evacuee’s use.  It also contained the entire camp’s main administrative offices, hospital, MP offices, warehouses, staff housing and other needed facilities.  A few miscellaneous facilities were outside the fence on the east side of the highway.

SASCO

Pinal Co.

This class B milling town is about 15 miles southwest of Red Rock, which is off I-10, at EXIT 226, 30 some miles northwest of Tucson. The post office was established in 1907 and discontinued in 1919. At its peak, Sasco had 600 residents, stores, saloons, and hotels. Remains include foundations of the smelter, Rockland Hotel, and the jail.  Sasco was an acronym from the name of the Southern Arizona Smelting Company.

TOMBSTONE

Cochise Co.

This is a class E/F silver-mining town that caters to visitors. Like Deadwood (SD) and Virginia City (NV), Tombstone is one of the Old West's legendary mining towns. It is full of history, and is a magnet for tourists, especially non-Americans. The "Town Too Tough To Die" is on US 80, about 75 miles southeast of Tucson.  However, the true history is hidden behind a touristy glitz that attracts foreign tourists like a magnet.  Even so, it is an interesting and worthwhile stop.  It was the Cochise County seat from 1881-1929, when it lost it to Bisbee.  Despite that, it is a fun and fascinating place to visit and some 1380 folks still lived there at the time of the 2010 census.

See our Two Guns page for additional details.

VULTURE CITY

Maricopa Co.

This is a privately-owned class C gold-mining town located on Vulture Mine Road, a dozen miles south of US-60 at a point four miles west of Wickenburg. It was active from the 1860s through the 1880s and is filled with picturesque ruins and standing buildings. 

This wonderful old ghost is now currently closed to the public.

The site of this class B silver-mining town is hard to find. It is located five miles east of US 93, 44 miles north of Kingman. A little rubble and the remains of a reservoir mark where a town of several hundred folks, a dozen saloons, several stores and other amenities thrived a century ago.  The GNIS arrow shows the site wrong.  The actual site is a bit south along White Hills Road at the junction just before entering the canyon about ¾ of a mile west of the reservoir.

YUMA TERRITORIAL PRISON

 

Yuma Co.

Though technically not a ghost TOWN, this is a historic class C/F site and is located at Yuma, in the extreme southwest tip of the state. It is a state park, and is well worth a stop. This is the remains of the old territorial prison, and has extensive ruins, including the roofless  central cellblock, dugout cells, watch tower, and other restored structures.  The cemetery also remains.  Many of the prison cells still have the original heavy bars and some have had beds reinstalled to show how bad the conditions were. Walking through the entrance gate really takes you back into the real Wild West.

With over 30 years of research behind them, they will be a welcome addition to any ghost towner's library.
