“come join the old west”

Chloride Ghost Town is Located approximately 23 miles north of Kingman, Arizona and 80 miles south of Las Vegas, Nevada, and just a short 4 miles off Highway 93. The ghost town is located in historic Chloride, the oldest silver mining camp in Arizona.  Stop by the ghost town for a free afternoon of fun in the old west. We show a Free movie about Chloride’s history and give out lots of Free popcorn too. Be sure to visit the authentic museum set up like a home from the era of the late 1890′s. The ghost town has a jail, an assayor’s office, an undertakers office, saloon, general store, livery stable, blacksmiths shop, Lavender Lace’s Boarding House for Fine Women, a bank, schoolhouse, and feed store. All perfect for taking  pictures. Star in your own Wild West youtube movie or get an authentic old time photo taken in one of the building. We’ll even dress you up in period clothes. We also have shops open that sell souvenirs  and old time clothing.

Cute little town! We stopped in on our drive to Vegas and really glad we did. There was no one there (at the center of town where the buildings are) so we were able to take pics and walk around without having to share the area with anyone else. I wish we had taken the time to research this town more before we stopped, otherwise we would have planned on staying the night so we would have more time to explore. There is a ton of stuff to do there if you love the outdoors.

Some people call it a tourist trap, but I don't believe that. It doesn't cost you anything and there is hardly anyone around! My complete review and pics: http://nuttyhiker.com/chloride-ghost-mining-town-arizona/

I've been to Chloride and love the ambience. I love to photograph quirky places The abandoned buildings evoke times past. I imagine the glory days and lots of cowboys in the saloon, with dancing and singing. (I think ghost hunters should check this place out. ;-) )
There are painted murals up in the mountains, but I heard you need a 4 wheel drive to get up there.
It is a stop from Kingman to Las Vegas, a nice place to unwind after the craziness of Vegas.

Use to love to stop in Chloride when we lived in Henderson, NV. Loved going to all the little "Ghost Towns". So much history. I could get lost in thought trying to imagine how hard it was for the people that built these towns. Too bad all history couldn't be preserved to look at and walk on the places others struggled to survive on. I have lived in Ohio, FL, NV, TN, VA, and have traveled coast to coast, from our southern borders to the northern, from Florida to Alaska. So much to be learned from the places and the people. Truly fortunate to have seen so much of this country and the history and beauty it holds. Still love to explore those new places I've not yet been.

What Chloride is, is a beautiful, wondrous piece of Americana from the mining days gone by. That some local business people have added a bit of commercial ambiance and backdrop in no way, shape or form detracts from the fact that Chloride drips with images and whispers of those amazing times. People that give Chloride bad reviews are self-important morons. Chloride is an experience that is as much about the imagination and emotion as it is the visual remains and enhancements. Chloride once, for a short period of time, thrived, and I can't even imagine what life back then was like. A visit to this place however will at least give you a visceral glimpse of what those folks experienced. Bravo Chloride!

I love going to this little town. It is in FACT a ghost & mining town. This little place has been burned down at least 3 times. They have the historic gas station, train station and the Jail. Driving up to the murals, you do not need a 4 wheel drive, I have been here so many times and know from experience. I only had a problem one time when some of the dirt road was washed out. In that case I parked and walked up a quarter mile. Since then, I have no problems with driving all the way up in my car. I also like to hike around to the old silver mining area, found a few nugget there! If you go to this town, stopping off at Sheps (Yesterdays) to grab a burger is a MUST! The people in the town are very informative and very friendly! Every Saturday at high noon, they do a cowboy gun show, visit the theater (the old saloon) to learn more history about this little town and have some appreciation for it....

DON'T waste your time or gas to come here. This is a town facade wood backdrop in the middle of a neighborhood. There are no actual old buildings. Instead go to Calico Ghost Town!
