  • Why be listed on the map and have the brown directional signs if you are not open for tourists to come? Very disappointed that we couldn't see this attraction except from the outside of the fence!  more »
  • If you are into the old west history and ghost towns then this is a great place for you! The tour guide is very rich in knowledge of the history of the old mining town and the family that lived there....  more »
  • We were disappointed that the ghost town was only open by appointment and specific days only. Drove down a dirt road off the beaten track and say a little - enough to take a few pictures and leave. No...  more »
  • Kewl lil town. I can imagine its creepy at times maybe to feel where they lived and died but God was there in their struggles and Happiness too,, not so Creepy at all. I saw two ghost towns right by ea other. Something most of us only watch on youtube. It made some Cool pix. Thnx for Shareing your History Little Town. Thnx for Shareing your Town Owners and Arizona 💁
  • Not much here. Hard to get in, no info. Not really creepy.
  • Google mapped correctly, this location is closed to the public. Guided tours only can be arranged in advance. I couldn't get in, but circled the property. Pretty neat place if you're into this sort of thing.
  • Nice place
  • Pretty sure google maps has this in the incorrect place. I just happened to stop at the Lordsburg, NM visitors center and asked about Shakespeare Ghost Town, which I thought was in Deming, NM. They said it was right there in Lordsburg. They said it was only open one weekend a month, which is why some other reviews posted about the "keep out" sign, I guess. I checked out the spot in Deming that google maps has as Shakespeare Ghost Town. It's empty road.
