Chloride Arizona Ghost Town

Chloride was a mining town in the late 1800's. More than 50 mines operated around the small town of Chloride producing gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc.


Visiting today, it is hard to believe this dusty town was once bustling and 2,000 people once called this tiny town home. Today around 250 residents call Chloride home. The town is considered Arizona's oldest continuously inhabited mining town.

Chloride is considered a living ghost town. You can see the remains of the Santa Fe stagecoach. The post office has been in operation since 1873.

Chloride has a couple of  restaurants, some shops and an and an Inn.

Re-enacted gunfights can be seen on  Saturdays.
