Chloride

Chloride

Way up in the northwest corner of Arizona is the little town of Chloride, the oldest continuously inhabited mining camp in the state - and a ghost town that's still very much alive. Built on silver - and later on lead and zinc - Chloride once boasted more than 2,500 citizens and had more than 70 actively producing mines. Today, Chloride is a ghost of what it was, but what it is, is a friendly, vibrant small community, living with its past and enjoying its present. Snugged up against the Cerbat Mountains, this not-quite-ghost town is as real as it gets. Artists and retirees, outdoor lovers and a few young families revel in the clean air, quiet setting (except when the coyotes sing in the hills), killer sunsets and star-spangled night skies. This little town's motto says it pretty well: "Chloride - quaint, quirky...cool!"
