You’ll Love Visiting Arizona’s 7 Most Notorious Ghost Towns

Arizona is home to nearly 300 ghost towns, some also indiscernible from the landscape. While it can be tough to figure out what some of these once lively towns looked like or how daily life operated, there are some towns that are well-documented, thanks in part to their notorious histories. Today, we’re going to take a look at seven such towns that earned a reputation, most for their lawlessness and propensity for violence.

Please note: some of these locations gained notoriety for being a ghost town but have grown enough in recent years to shed that status. However, we still think they deserve a spot on this list for their historical significance.
