Visit a reconstructed 1890s town with many family-friendly activities.

Goldfield Ghost Town is a great place to experience a fun "ghost town" that was reconstructed for visitors to be able to experience a bit of western history. Goldfield is about 35 miles southeast of Phoenix, just outside of Apache Junction, Arizona. The scenery is amazing and the town has great activities for the entire family. There is great food and some shops, a bakery, the Mammoth Saloon & Steakhouse, and on Saturday and Sunday, gunfights are performed.

In 1892, Goldfield sat on a hill near the Superstition Mountains and Goldfield Mountains and Goldfield was a bustling town that had struck gold in 1892. Today, visitors can get a feel for the old western past through the reconstructed town. The gold strike put the original town on the map and is believed to have been worth as much as three million dollars. The gold strikes continued and supported a vibrant population of 4,000 people. The town had a general store, post office, several saloons, a blacksmith, a meat market, a schoolhouse, a boarding house, a hotel, and a brewery. With a break in the gold vein, the town began to decline. Many attempts were made to revive the town between 1910 and 1926, but the mines never produced more gold.

"Mayor" Bob Schoose is the co-founder and owner of the Goldfield Ghost Town. Along with the steak house and saloon, the town has a Coffee Cantina & Bakery, a general store, and the Miner's Grill & Ice Cream Shop.

Pets are welcome on a leash but cannot go into the shops, restaurants, or the general store.

Visitors can also pan for gold, watch a rendition of a gunfight, tour the underground mines, go horseback riding, or take a carriage ride.

Don't miss the Goldfield Superstition Museum with its various exhibits related to the town and its nearby mountains. Tip: wear appropriate footwear for a more pleasant experience.
