Sheds at the Gold King Mine Ghost Town

by Kristi Hines · Arizona, Jerome


During a day trip to Jerome, Arizona, my husband and I took a tour of the Gold King Mine Ghost Town. While he was shooting classic automobiles, I snuck past a warning sign about rattlesnakes (fortunately it was cold so those weren’t anything to worry about) and found this great area with a couple of run down sheds along the hillside. The cloudy day made a beautiful backdrop.

Looks like a cool place to visit, very interesting subject. I like the patterns created on the rusty roof of the building up the hill.

It was a pretty interesting area James. Lots of subjects to photograph – I have several fun chicken shots from the same area as well to post on a later date. 🙂

Looks really interesting. I can lose myself for hours on old abandoned places. There are groups devoted to finding, gaining access to and photographing abandoned property, both domestic and commercial.

If there was one near where I live I’d probably join.

I’d probably join too Steve! I would’ve loved to spend a few hours in this place, but by the time we found it, they were closing in one hour. At least it’s nearby so we can go again and have some more time to explore some other creepy spots. 🙂

I love these old ghost towns. I’ve found a couple creepy ones out in Nevada…old silver mining boom towns that appear to have just been abandoned one day. Great study in anthropology.

Yes it is Stuart. I’ll have to research the ones in Nevada and see if they’re near Las Vegas as my husband and I usually go out there a few times in the fall.
