Goldfield Ghost Town in Apache Junction is one of Arizona's popular tourists sites, located right next to the Superstition Mountains.
In 1892, gold was found in the mountains, thus giving its name of Goldfield. More than 3 million dollars worth of gold was found in the mountains.
About 4,000 people moved here to get closer to the gold. The town consisted of stores, a post office, saloons, a school, hotel, ect..
Eventually there was a break in the gold mine and caused the town to decrease in population.
Now Goldfield is used as a tourist site.
Used for photoshoots and fun visits for any age.
The story of Goldfield Ghost Town still lives on.
