Most People Have No Idea This Abandoned Mining Town In Arizona Even Exists
There are plenty of long-forgotten ghost towns in Arizona, but few are as old and dusty as Klondyke. Not to be confused with the popular ice cream bar, this historic mining settlement is home to fewer than 50 people today – a far cry from its peak population of around 500. All that remains in Klondyke is a general store…and the lingering tendrils of tragedy that have seeped their way into the very essence of the town.
Have you ever passed through Klondyke? Are there any other ghost towns in Arizona that few people know exist anymore? If so, we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments. Don’t forget to check out our previous article for more reasons to visit Willcox.
