This old mine/ghost town provides for a very interesting visit. There are many old relics, especially cars and trucks. There are several old buildings filled with relics of all sorts. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

It was okay for the price. I am glad I went. A lot of cool things to look at. It was more like a mine junk yard though.

I personally can't answer that. But you can call the souvenir store I believe and they can answer that question. You can go to the website for the info.
