Presented by: Bill HarrisonIn 1893, Goldfield became a boomtown! The discovery of gold in the rugged foothills of the Superstition Mountains
caused the Arizona Territory to celebrate! Local newspapers predicted Goldfield would be bigger than Phoenix in a few
years. Hundreds of rowdy men enjoyed saloons, gambling house and a brothel in Goldfield.
Unfortunately, in the early years of the 20th Century, the gold ran out and a fire leveled the town.
This is the remarkable story of a ghost town brought back to life. For more than 30 years, Bob Schoose has carefully rebuilt Goldfield along the Apache Trail.
Today, travelers from all over the world visit the ghost town to experience the excitement of Arizona’s Wild West!
Desert and cowboy photography will be exhibited by LW Photography Club.
All lectures are co-sponsored by the LW Foundation and the Recreation
