Castle Mountain MInes Museum


Now a ghost town.....Castle Dome was once a bustling industrial town housing 3000 people....
Restored buildings house authentic relics from the town’s past including old mining equipment, furniture and newspaper clippings.

A few open mines...
This area is about 10 miles off the main highway... I've always been attracted to the Castle Mountain.

The last few miles is a narrow gravel road...but the beauty of the desert is worth the drive!
