Goldfield
Arizona

<!-- @page { margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } -->

Goldfield was a town which began in 1893, with the gold rush. Between 3000 - 5000 people settled here. There were 50 working mines in the district. But the biggest producer was the Mammoth mine. However, attempts to dig deeper in the rich lode resulted in a flooding of the mine. Apparently the other mines produced only low grade ore. Eventually, the mines closed and the townsfolk moved on. Goldfield's post office was discontinued November 2, 1898.

The town had a second lease of life when, with the advent of new mining techniques, the town came alive again and a post office was opened on June 8, 1921. However the 'rebirth' was to be short lived and the post office was discontinued October 30, 1926 and the town died once again.

It remained a ghost town until the old Goldfield Mill site was bought in 1986 and work began on what we see there today. Goldfield opened for business as a tourist attraction in 1988.
