History

Settlement of the town got underway in 1892, which is when gold ore was discovered in the area. From there, it quickly became a hot spot for settlers in search of the precious metal, drawing some 1,500 residents. In 1898, the gold had run out and the town became deserted.

Many decades later, Robert Schoose and his wife, Lou Ann, purchased the old mill site land and started reconstructing the buildings and mining tunnel. Today, Goldfield Ghost Town is a top attraction for locals and visitors alike.
