Here in Arizona,  We AIN'T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS! Want to visit a place with very view to NO Living People? Try visiting the Ghost Towns in Arizona...the land of Sunny skies and wide open spaces. Don't want to live in a ghost town? Well I can help you there also...read on! (People have been searching for the Lost Dutchman Gold mine in the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix for 100+ years).

 

Tombstone, Arizona 1881

Visit our State Parks for the remnants of the old Calvary Forts like Fort Bowie

 

Visiting Arizona or ready for an adventure? Take a drive and a hike and explore Arizona Ghosts Towns and Ghost Forts such as Fort Bowie where Geronimo surrendered in 1886 (above). There are hundreds to choose from. Starting in Central Arizona from Phoenix many are just 1 to 3 hours away by car.

Ghost Towns In Arizona

Many were former mining sites that were abandoned after their boom years. See this picture of the old Gold King Mine ghost town. Some like Tombstone hung on based on their tourist appeal. Other ghost towns lost prominence after the railroads came through. Still other were set up to support US Army and Calvary posts that were no longer active after there was peace in the Arizona Territory. If you are interested in ghost forts in Arizona check here also. The old route 66 was once a major east to west thoroughfare. After Interstate 40 was completed, the towns along Route 66 fell into oblivion. Some still hang on.  Other towns were built along the Arizona rivers and creeks. The series of dams throughout the state caused some of these towns to vanish.

The remants of these towns are still available for the explorer to hike, study and take a step back to a time that once was.

Come to Arizona, with the blues skies, warm weather and expore the ghost towns, Grand Canyon, White mountains, red rock country of Sedona, Colorado River, Tombstone, our modern cities, sports teams and universities and of course....the ghost towns.

 Lost Fort Mohave Arizona

                              What the lost Fort Mohave on the Colorado River once looked like

 

Ghost Forts in Arizona

One of my favorites is the Lost Fort Mohave. Now on the reservation near current day Fort Mohave. Where is the old Fort? It used to be on the Colorado River when it was wider before the dams. Now the remnant, the flag pole is still there (some say) is off the river bounded by still existing Infantry Road and Calvary Road. The fort was donated to the Indians and later dismantled. As mentioned also check ghost forts in Arizona 

 Fort Bowie remains 1937

       Fort Bowie remains from 1937, where Geronimo surrendered, in 1886

"We ain't afraid of no ghosts" Kathy Streib, some are just a few buildings or remains of old mining camps and in rugged places. We even have ghost forts. Jeff
