A pretty neat place to check out! I only had a hour and it was no where enough time! I found out while talking to the lady in the gift shop that many of the vehicles actually start & run. That they are always moving, changing & adding stuff. Check it out!

There is so much to see. My husband loved it and if you are interested in cars or mines then you need to go. I am not a photographer but I think you would take amazing pictures. You will meet the owner, see them cut wood, make some furniture, pet a donkey, see some chickens in addition to everything else.... More

Took the grand boys - they expected a old west ghost town - what we got was a old shut down copper mine. It was still interesting seeing all the old equipment, and items from the turn of the 1900's. They described it though as a junk yard, yet still enjoyed the stop. It was educational, self tour only. If... More

Jerome is a really cool town but as we were leaving for Sedona we stumbled across signs for a gold mine, ghost town and the 'real' west. We were not disappointed. The proprietor of the property has an extensive collection of old cars and trucks strewn about the grounds of the old mine along with loads of mechanical memorabilia and... More

We were traveling from the Grand Canyon to Prescott, Arizona and noticed the signs for this place. We arrived about fifteen minutes before opening time but the gift shop was open. We took a quick look around the shop and walked out the front door to move along down the road without touring the ghost town. Out came Don, the... More

There is an old working lumber mill here and they make amazing furniture, some of the best I've seen. They also sell lumber at reasonable prices. A great way to spend some time with the family just walking around looking at all the cool old stuff. It is not a junk yard, This is a life long collection of really... More

A great history lesson! Take the kids, take the adults, take your time! Wear comfy shoes for sure. We had so much fun looking at everything! Hope to go back in a few years.

This place was cool! I read a few reviews that were critical, but I am glad we went. I had four young boys with me and they went crazy. They had to touch everything and guess what?? It wasn't a problem!! They panned for gold, saw old cars, trucks and mining equipment. For those that thought it was "just a... More

My family of 3 enjoyed the walk through "ghost town." There really isnt anything Ghostly about it. There are 10-15 small buildings with old relics, most of which were brought in from other areas. Tons and tons of old automobiles laying around. An original brothel building that you can go into for its about to fall down. There have gold... More
