Goldfield, AZ This gold town thrived in the 1890s, then died and was reborn a number of times between 1910 and 1926. In the 1960s, it was reconstructed as a tourist stop. Goldfield offers perhaps more kitschy fun than historical preservation: you can visit the Superstition Museum, ride a narrow gauge railroad, or see folks in period costumes stir up a reenacted gunfight in the street.
1. Ingalls- Settled after the 1889 land rush, this busy town had about 150 people living in it. This ghost town was the site of a shootout between the Doolin and Dalton gangs. There is a stone memorial in the town in remembrance of the marshals who were killed.
