California's historic silver mining town

Located in Yermo, California, Calico is and old silver mining town that has been around since the late 1800s. When silver lost it's value, the town quickly became abandoned in the 1890s. A town that once provided an abundant living for miners, lost it's hustle and bustle and became a "ghost town." 

Calico was purchased and architecturally restored by Walter Knott in the 1950s. There are a few buildings that were left untouched to help keep it's historic charm and ensure the entire town looks as though it did in the 1880s. Today, visitors are welcomed daily from 9am to 5pm and can enjoy the town's quaint shops, restaurants, camping, hiking and off-roading trails. Calico Ghost Town is a great stop for the entire family, with many shops offering candy and toy selections, crafts, panning for silver and an ice cream parlor.
