Goldfield Ghost Town

Another photo set from the Apache Trail. Goldfield began in 1892 after gold was discovered in the vicinity. It has since been purchased and restored, and is now a tourist attraction.

Superstition Mountain Museum

Nestled at the foot of Superstition Mountain about four miles northeast of Apache Junction is a goldmine (pun may or may not be intended) for fans of the old western films of yesteryear. Not only is the Superstition Mountain Museum a spot for movie memorabilia, but its creators at the Superstition Mountain Historical Society strive to  preserve the legends of the region through its artifacts and folklore. My cousin and I took a little tour of the 12-acre site back in October of 2016 to photograph some of what’s there. More information on the museum can be found on the Society’s website. Enjoy!
