If you are a photographer and enjoy old stuff and turning those pictures into HDR, etc., this place is for you. It is only $5.25 to get in. The 100 year old saw mill still works.

I never read a review and don't want to spoil it for anyone else. If you like looking at antiques and old cars and taking photos GO HERE! I recommend going around noon for high lighting in photos and the late afternoon lighting was also great for edited pics. Dress warmer as mountain air is cooler than Cottonwood, Camp Verde, Phoenix, but may be warmer than Flagstaff. Take batteries or a good charged camera. 5 bucks to walk around self guided and take as long as you like. We were in awe when we went, didn't eat lunch and they let is go back to our car grab a snack and walk around with our food. It is all outside. Bathrooms are like outhouses outside but with plumbing. Kids may be bored here.

A lot of old mining equipment and machinery with a self walking tour . Would of been nice if someone explain what its used for .Owner collects old cars and trucks also some old studebakers cars . 100 year old sawmill that actually works and cuts wood for some of the art folk in town.
Weather was good so a nice walk in the sun helped with the self tour of Dons personnal collectables . But came to see more of a real ghost town

When you visit here you need to see past the written comments posted around the place, after all that's not what you came for. If you want to see the most incredible collection of, in some eyes, junk then this is the place for you. From a 1902 electric Studebaker to jeeps, compressors, stone crushers, saws, fuel tankers, AAtrucks, Fords of all sorts, Rex, Ingersoll Rands, Cummins Diesel, the list is endless, Harley Davidsons abound including an Army WW2 Harley from 1942, you will be amazed by the shear amount of 'stuff' here. Some in working condition some wrecks enthusiasts will be fascinated. Do not come expecting to see a mine rather more an eclectic collection of anything mechanical. Wear good footwear no heels here !

This is the junkiest place I've ever seen. I learned nothing about the mine. It was mostly piles of rusting metal. Don't bother.
