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.
Summer is just around the corner and it’s time for Chloride’s semi-annual All Town Yard Sale. This year the sale is set for Saturday, May 3rd, starting at 8 a.m.
Make your first stop the Mine Shaft Market/Arizona Visitor Center on Tennessee Avenue. There you can pick up a map of all the yard sales throughout Chloride. Then simply follow the marked map to each of the sales. The friendly folks of Chloride will have antiques, collectibles and great junk in their very own yards. You’ll probably find everything you ever needed or wanted, and all at bargain prices!
Be sure to stop by Cyanide Springs, Chloride’s ghost town on Elkhart Avenue at “high noon”. The Long Coats ‘N Lace gunfight troupe will take you back to the rough and tumble early years when the streets of Chloride were full of miners, desperadoes, soiled doves and other unmentionable characters. While you’re in Cyanide Springs stop by the Jim Fritz Museum. Next door at the Silverbelles Playhouse a short film of the history of Chloride is played all day.
After you’ve check out the yard sales why not visit the unique businesses in town. You’ll find handmade silver jewelry, collectibles, antiques, western art, and Arizona made gifts. When hunger strikes check out Yesterday’s Restaurant on Second Street or Digger Dave’s on Tennessee Avenue. For history buffs a visit to the old jail on Merrimac Avenue, a stop by the train depot, and a visit to the Roy Purcell Murals will top off a fun day in Chloride.
