Great place to take the family and see all the old items they have there! My son loved all the old trucks and chickens they had running around. I would recommend this to anyone.

It was certainly an honor to meet Don. He is a unique and true individual. There are things out there on his place that you will never see anywhere else. and go say hi to Pedro.

If you love old things you will love this place! The old cars, trucks and motorcycles are in their original condition. A working steam lumber mill. Hens with their chicks and roosters running around everywhere, goats and a donkey. As you walk in the front door of the gift shop the hummingbirds are buzzing around you from every direction.

I was so excited to visit this place, as it is advertised, and may have been, once upon a time a mine. My husband and I enjoyed walking around the junkyard and seeing some of the old cars. We then met Don (I believe that was his name, the older man who lives on the property). Well, he seemed friendly... More

The Gold King Mine is a must see if you love old towns and things! Don the man who owns it has done a great job of collecting all kinds of great things to look at...plus you can feed the chickens and the goats.I go here 3-4 times a year for years! When ever I have friends come to visit... More

We drove to Jerome to see a ghost town. Being from Montana, the Gold King Mine was the closest thing in the area to an actual ghost town. Yes, there is junk everywhere. Yes, there are old broken down and rusted cars (a third of them run!) all over the property. But if you want a taste of "old west"... More

If you are looking for something different than a constructed western ghost town, you may consider coming here. There is the museum and history and artifacts from the ghost town along with a lot of old equipment and vehicles, it won't be everyones cup of tea but if you are passing by why not? The town of Jerome itself is... More

We really thought this was just a junkyard when we pulled up, but apparently that is the idea. A "ghost town" full of dilapidated buildings, rusted out cars and other junk strewn about with a couple of cute animals, some interesting old antiques, and the old Gold Mine entrance. Apparently this was a real working area with buildings and activity,... More

Enjoyed by the whole family. Real people, old vehicles, farm animals, gift store, and a view. May not be as enjoyable on a hot day?
