Calico Ghost Town
On the way to Las Vegas for some work, I stopped
off at the Calico Ghost Town in California. I knew it would be
somewhat 'touristy', but it was more than I imagined since it had been
rebuilt/restored by Walter Knott, founder of Knott's Berry Farm.
Located in the Mohave Desert, Calico is still probably a good
example of what a mining town looked like in the late 1800s. Calico was a
silver mine (made famous by the Maggie Mine and King Silver mine. Now
owned by the county, the Calico Ghost town is an interesting stop, but probably
not worthy as a destination all by itself.
