Shakespeare usually opens up every other weekend in the fall and is worth your time if you are in the area. The tour guide I have had both times I have been there is a great story teller and very knowledgeable. It is incredible to step back into the past and see what it was like to live in this... More

My husband and I just took a tour of this ghost town and it was so much fun! Our tour guide was very friendly and nice and had so much information about the town and it's history, as well as the Hill family who bought it in the 30s. We loved our time here and would recommend anyone who is... More

My wife and I were traveling from Tucson back to our home in Albuquerque and stopped off at the Visitors Center in Lordsburg. We learned that four times a year the privately owned "ghost town" opened for visitors to tour and discover. So we went back this past September and took our grandson with us. Well, the entry fee was... More

The websight clearly stated they would be open to day and there were three families waiting for me to call to find out the websight is not correct. Off by a month. Don't believe what you read.

The tour of Shakespeare Ghost Town was excellent and very enjoyable. We went through various buildings and had plenty of time to photograph the interiors.

Really takes you to another time. It usually is not opened. I think the family who runs it might not be doing it any more. If there's a phone number call first.

Nothing to see here unless you want to waste some time in Lordsburg. The drive south from the interstate is more interesting than the venue if you want to experience a ghost town.

The owner of the private ghost town ranch is no longer able to give tours, so one weekend a month someone else leads tours. The dates are listed on the website http://www.shakespeareghostown.com/ There is a lot of interesting ranch and area history and the tour guide has been around enough to make it interesting. Plenty of photo sites. A great... More
