GHOST TOWNS
Back in the day, Arizona represented the raggedy edge of the frontier. Communities
sprang up for a variety of reasons but not all survived. Today, ghost towns dot the
Arizona landscape. They come in varying stages of decline, but each has its own story.

ROUTE 66 GHOST TOWN
Two Guns survived for decades as a
tourist stop on Route 66, but today the
hollowed-out remains of trading posts, gas
stations, and a roadside zoo are all that
remain. Don't be surprised if you detect
an eerie presence here - Two Guns has a
tragic history that includes the massacre
of 42 Apaches at the " death cave " in 1878.
VULTURE CITY
Located 12 miles outside of Wickenburg
is the site of one of Arizona's most productive
gold mines at Vulture City. Walk
the graveled half-mile path to see the
collection of weathered historic buildings
surrounded by old mining equipment
such as the stamp mill and headframe.
Open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily.
GHOST TOWN TRAIL
Just outside of Tombstone a lonely dirt road weaves through desert scrub and links Gleeson,
Courtland and Pearce, three former mining communities strung along the length of Arizona's
Ghost Town Trail. Gleeson boasts a museum that's open to the public the first Saturday of
every month, while Pearce survives with several historic buildings and shops.
