Depends on what you call a 'Ghost Town'. Bisbee and Tombstone (south of Tucson), Jerome (near Cottonwood), Crown King (near Prescott) and Oatman and Chloride (near Kingman) are all old west mining towns with historic buildings, but are still inhabited (and do a booming tourist business for much of the year). Bisbee in particular has become very popular with artists and retires.

True ghost towns (ie: all or mostly abandoned) are all over the place, but most have little more than faint outlines or a few walls and not the rows of standing buildings often seen on TV. A few of the better true ghost towns are:

- Sasco, (my nickname) an old smelter town near Pichacho Peak north of Tucson that still has a lot of smelter ruins.

- Swansea, copper mining town with many building remains located in the middle of nowhere near Parker.

- Vulture, a gold mining town (now tourist attraction) near Wickenburg

- Ruby, copper and lead mine south of Tucson (access only by permission of property owners).

- Charleston, mill town on San Pedro River near Tucson. Many shells of adobe walls still hidden in underbrush.

Imber on Salisbury basic is stable (on protection rigidity land yet they open it approximately as at as quickly as as a three hundred and sixty 5 days for visitors); there are additionally finished villages with historic origins that now lie decrease than infinite reservoirs the region valleys have been flooded. there replaced precise right into a submerged village in derbyshire; in a drought 3 hundred and sixty 5 days you ought to wish to make particular the steeple at one time yet i think of it replaced into bumped off indoors the ideal 2 some years or so via reality of possibility to achieveable visitors. There are additionally the remnants of abandoned medieval villages, that have been abandoned after maximum electorate died contained interior the Black dying.. in spite of the reality that, those often are no longer any extra beneficial proper than earthworks now. sometimes the church will stay, relatively if yet yet another community had taken it over. In Abington Park in northampton, the little church there as at as quickly as as served a now vanished medieval village.
