  • I think the name of this place is misleading- It is more of a Machine Museum than a ghost town. For those who appreciate machinery and old vehicles of all types, this is not to be missed. At the same ...  more »

  • Really cool ghost town!! Mining equipment is just strewn about as if workers were there a few days ago. It was awesome to go roam around there and check everything out up close.
  • Great place. The blacksmith shop is awesome. Vintage cars all around. Definitely worth the trip.
  • We will always visit this interesting ghost town. The passing of the owner, Don, was sad to hear. I am sure his family will carry on this legacy.
  • the vintage cars & things are cool but sadly you can’t get into the mine like you can at Calico Ghost Town. still cool though! only $5 entrance fee
  • Basically you pay $5 per person to visit a dead persons junkyard. Although there may be a few treasures there (about a dozen antique cars/trucks), the rest of the stuff would be of little interest even to the American Pickers. Don't take your wife there if you are on vacation unless she likes manly junk. As for the 'ghost town' part of it, although somewhat interesting, is all in disrepair and continuing to rot away. It won't last as long as the famous Arizona monuments unless someone restores all of it. Thera are a lot of trucks with no engines, rotted tires and misc junk spewed around even the somewhat interesting stuff.
