Calico Ghost Town

When I was writing about Doodletown recently I realized I never posted pictures from a Ghost Town in California called Calico.

Calico is a ghost town and former mining town in San Bernardino County, California located in the Calico Mountains of the Mojave Desert. It was founded in 1881 as a silver mining town. By the early 1900′s t was nearly deserted. Walter Knott of Knott’s Berry Farms purchased the land, renovated it and began restoring it to its original condition. He opened it to the public and later donated it to the county. If you’re ever on a road trip and driving by the area it’s worth checking out.

You can find an album of pictures I took here.
