Rock Springs; Ghost Towns in Cleator and Crown King

Rock Springs; Ghost Towns in Cleator and Crown King

Rock Springs - There's a reason people travel 30 miles north of Phoenix to Rock Springs, great pies! Here we learn all about them pies in this rare interview with Penny "the Pie Lady" Cooley, who's usually baking them at three in the morning. Cleator - Next it's off to look for Ghost Towns and the first stop is in Cleator, whose gold prospecting days date back to 1864. Originally called Turkey Siding, this former ore train station and smelting center was re-named after James P. Cleator, who bought all the property here in 1905. Today his descendants still own the entire town. Crown King - The next Ghost Town is Crown King, named after the Crowned King Mine, which was discovered in the early 1870s and took in over $2 million in its day. Here you'll still see many of the town's original buildings, including a school, general store, saloon, post office and Mill Restaurant. 07/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
