Goldfield Ghost town and Mine Tour sign

Goldfield 1893 sign

Back in the 1890′s Goldfield boasted 3 saloons, a boarding house, general store, blacksmith shop, brewery, meat market and a school house. Just when it looked like the town would outgrow Mesa, the vein faulted, the grade of ore dropped and the town died a slow painful death.

After several unsuccessful attempts to reopen the mines, the town did come to life again from 1910 on and off until 1926.

After more than 115 years, travelers from all over the world may now visit this gold mining town located on the historic Apache Trail and enjoy the excitement and grandeur of Arizona's wild west!

Note: There were a lot of things to see and do here that the two RV Gypsies did not take the time to do sometimes because they charged a fee and sometimes just because they did not want to spend that much time here. Attractions include - The Superstition Narrow Gauge Railroad, Goldfield Mine Tours, Ghost Walking tour, Apache Trail tours, a Reptile Exhibit, gunfight in the street, a shooting gallery, gold panning and more.
