This Ghost Town Jail In Arizona Will Bring Out Your Adventurous Side

Arizona is home to over 200 ghost towns, many of which have lost nearly all evidence of having ever been populated. However, the tiny town of Gleeson – though only home to only about five people – is still alive, and reminders of its heyday have been impeccably preserved. While it might be a mere blip on the map near Tombstone, it’s also home to one of the oldest and longest-standing jails in the entire state, which definitely deserves a visit.
