Calico Ghost Town
Located in a small isolated area of California sits the remnants of the Calico ghost town. It wasn’t always a ghost town, in the late 1800’s it was a popular place because of its silver mines. Calico has the reputation for becoming the largest silver strike in California history. Needless to say, when word got out a lot of people came to Calico looking for their own piece of the pie. The mines produced about 20,000 million dollars in silver ore over a 10 year period. But like all stories it had to end, and with the end of the mines came an end to the town.
The town sat for decades rotting away until the 1950’s when a man by the name of Walter Knott purchased the town. He ended up restoring most of the town back to the way it looked in the 1800’s. Today the location is part of the San Bernadino County Parks system. The town has shops, tours, and all kinds of events going on for the public.
Calico Ghost Town History
Even back in the 1950s, those who helped with the restoration reported seeing and hearing some odd things. Throughout the decade’s numerous guests and workers have had some pretty creepy paranormal incidents. Could the restorations brought back the energy as well as the old spirits that used to call it home? Could those who have passed tragically in the area still be roaming the ghost town looking to get rich?
