Goldfield Ghost Town - The legendary Goldfield Ghost Town, where gold was first discovered in 1892 and brought in over $3 million dollars in gold bullion until 1896. A little over 20 miles east of Mesa, the town is located on a hill between the Superstition and Goldfield Mountains. Today you can experience the town's history and explore its Main Street, tour the mine, visit the museum, pan for gold, take a narrow-gauge train ride, witness an Old West gun fight, and meet the ladies of Lu Lu's Bordello, who offer family-oriented facts about their establishment. The Bluebird Mine and Curio Shop - The Bluebird Mine is also located in this mountain mining district. A scene from Raising Arizona was filmed at Bluebird; also President Ronald Reagan narrated a number of Death Valley Days programs here.
