Ghost towns and Arizona go together like chips and salsa; it’s a natural combination that makes each a little better.

Maricopa County has at least a dozen abandoned towns so here are a few that once thrived in the Sonoran desert and (with the exception of number two) you can still spot the remains of the communities that once lived in these places.
