A Visit To This Arizona Ghost Town Will Make You Feel Like You’ve Traveled Back In Time

Like visiting long-forgotten places that are slowly drying up under the Arizona sun? You’ll actually find a ton of places like this around the state in varying states of decay but if there’s any place that is a goldmine for them, it would have to be southeastern Arizona. Home to towns like Tombstone, Bisbee, and Tucson—all iconic places that have each earned their place in Arizona history—you’ll find plenty of ghost towns nearby.

One place we’re going to look at today sits just a short distance from Tombstone and one of the better-preserved ghost towns you’ll encounter.
