Cerro Gordo Ghost Town by Ian Parker

In 1877 the Union Mine buildings burned to the ground. The damage was repaired but the mine was left in debt. The misfortune of the fire, combined with declining yields of ore from the mine signaled the end of major mining operations by 1879 and Cerro Gordo became a virtual ghost town. It features original buildings and artifacts relevant to the town and is open to explore (there is a great Youtube channel about this site – “Ghost Town Living”). (Keeler, California, USA)
