Calico Ghost Town, - located in the Mojave Desert - is a restored silver mining town from the 1880's to the 1890's in Southern California.
A small part of the former town is original, and the rest has been reconstructed for the tourists. It seems to be a tourist trap. If you want to see a real Ghost Town, then this place is not for you.
It has some attraction such as a train ride, cowboys, shoot-outs, and plenty of old type buildings to take photos for your memories.

On our visit in July 2000 due to the extreme high temperature there were almost nobody here, only some of the inhabitants to collect your money.
