“"only the rugged need apply"”
What you will see here is a remanant town which stood larger than Yuma in 1878. Her weather beaten buildings remain in an area little changed from the 1800's. The mills stand silent, housing original boiler, stamp mill, and elavator, as if tomorrow they will awaken to the thunderous roar of steel crushing rock. The boardwalks still creak, the church bell rings out, the five saloons just await the story of their last shootout. The horse trails are beaten down & lead to the blacksmith. The old stage harness lies empty and the nail bags are waiting to be filled. The old glass has truned dark purple from years of sun. The machine shop has few changes, and old uncovered Roulette table is ready to spin up your fortune. The old Mercantile is still well stocked, the Doctor and Dentist office with all the tools to fix you up still awaits your visit. If you need a Postoffice or want to buy alot, the Land office and claim Filing office sits on the hill. All the details that made the 1800's the wild west are here for you to experience. Only the rugged need apply, to the Desert Woman who lived here for Decades. Come by, and you can visit the old Graveyard, or stand on the Balcony of the 2nd floor of the Doc's office and see for miles. Checking our the old buildings with everything from the oldest Levi Strauss pants in the world to the Dainties in the dress shop, are all here and more."

There's so much to learn about this ghost town. The tour was interesting and entertaining. I think even kids would love the tour. The road is very bumpy so make sure to take a car that can handle rough road.
