In april 2004 I went off-roading in Desert Mountains above Quartzsite Arzizona and stumbled upon the Ghost Town of Swansea. This place was large with a half dozen semi destroyed structures and a few open mines. After exploring this place I was hooked. Since then I have explored 70+ locations and counting.
A few years back I started researching ghost towns and abandoned locations and found out there were only a few outdated websites with information and a few generic photographs, but directions or how to get to these places were obsolete. So I started Ghost Towns of Arizona to share what I have discovered and to provide accurate GPS directions to each location as well as high resolution photographs and accurate historical information.
