Unique Find

A reader and fan of my blog asked me to share with my readers this “unique find”. Thank you! Talk about going the distance to locate a Nevada postcard and in of all places Chloride, Arizona.

Location:  The town of Chloride is between Kingman, Arizona and Boulder City, Nevada. Yes, basically in the middle of nowhere!

Once Upon a Time:  The town of Chloride began in the early 1860s. The town got its name from the Silver Chloride found and mined there. Also, found and mined here were gold, silver, lead, zinc, copper, and other metals and ore deposits (mining ended around 1944). You can still see the old bank vault, two room jail and the railroad station.

Interesting Facts:  #1 This town has the oldest continually functioning post office in Arizona although it has changed locations a few times. #2 Yard Art Anyone? This town just may have the largest collection of yard art, which one might consider junk. #3 This town may have a few ghosts in its buildings, mines and the people who have passed long ago.

Now:  The town of Chloride has a population of about 250 people with a motel, convenience store and a few gift shops.
