Get A Glimpse Of The Old Arizona At This Abandoned Mine And Ghost Town

Home to more than 275 ghost towns, it’s not uncommon to come across one slowly fading away under the Arizona sun. Most of these were old mining camps and towns established in the second half of the 19th century by mining companies looking to quickly produce ore before prices fell. Eventually, they did and the vast majority of these towns were abandoned within a short time period. One place we’re going to look at today is located almost 17 miles outside of Wickenburg.

If you would like to visit the remains of Vulture City and Vulture Mine, you can visit the area on Saturday mornings between October and May. Directions and details for visiting can be found at vultureminetours.com.
