This a a rebuild of the former area but well done and presented. Great for photo buffs. They have found a cave with florescent rocks that you can get separate tours to. Be advised the road it in gravel and can be bumpy.

The ghost town & mining sites are incredible. Each building & mine has a written story about it, a guided tour in a sense, the buildings are full of time period pieces. Truly amazing on how tough the miners were in such a harsh environment....More

If you like black light shows you will enjoy this. The Owners are very very nice people. They love to share the history of the Mines and the Museums. Great place to rent for events.
