Where are the hidden gems or unique spots to visit in Wickenburg, AZ?
Hidden Gems

Founded in 1863, Vulture City Ghost Town once boasted a population of 5,000. The mine, founded by the town’s namesake, Henry Wickenberg, brought people to the area and the town once boasted a brothel, mess hall, and post office. Water was brought to the area by Jack Swilling who reopened irrigation canals left by Native Americans, bringing agriculture back to the valley. In 1942, the mine was shut down for processing gold, a violation of the law because, at the time, all resources were to be focused on the war effort. The mine appealed and reopened but was not as productive and it closed again for an extended period. It has reopened today but is not open to the public. Today, there are 12 completely restored buildings in the town, including the Assay Building, the cookhouse, and Henry Wickenburg’s cabin with a hanging tree.

A fun thing to do while visiting is to go on the Wickenberg Legends and Ghost Tour. The tours are led by Madam Mariah as she travels on the Doom Buggy or Ghost Coaster, learning the legends and lore of the town. You may even capture a few orbs on film.
