Macabre Mercantile vs a Ghost Town

by on Aug.12, 2018, under News

The Macabre staff went exploring their new area today. We were in search of ghost towns near Las Vegas and we found a doozy.

When I say doozy I don’t mean it was great.

The Chloride Mining Town in Chloride, AZ is listed as a ghost town. Well it is definitely a dead town. There are very few inhabitants and  not much to really see for a tourist destination. There were some really old (early 1900) buildings like the Post Office and an Antique store but the highlight of the visit was an old west main street (totally fake BTW). It was something right out of a bad spaghetti western as imagined by a bunch of high school students who weren’t that great at set building.

We saw that they have a ‘gunfight’ every 2nd and 3rd Saturday – unfortunately it was Sunday so we didn’t get a show but Kali (our black dog and goddess of death) enjoyed wandering around.

Our Crypt Queen had to pose in front of the Mercantile, of course…..

While disappointing as a ghost town, it was still a fun outing. We bought some souvenirs so we never need to go back.
