Is Calico a ghost town? Or isn't it? 👻
Visitors from around the world come to Calico each year to experience a real ghost town.
Calico is like a trip back in time. You get a feeling of what life was like back in the 1800’s. Here you will find old time buildings, restaurants, a salon, sheriff station and even an outdoor jail cell. It's an old mining town that still has some rail and rail cars, and there’s a place to pan for gold.
The town thrived for 12 years, until the price of silver plunged and mining operations ceased. By 1907, residents had moved away, leaving Calico to the tumbleweeds and spirits. 😱
