A great look back into the mining history of old west. Discovered by Henry Wickenburg it reeks of history and conjures up ghosts of time long gone.

Unfortuately there is only one tour early on Sat. mornings. This is a piece of history that is a must. Very interesting and gives a glimpse into the life of a miner and a gold mine. Try to make it a stop on your visit.
