Calico Ghost Town Wall Art

A major role in California history; Calico Ghost Town is a living ghost town in the 21st century, complete with post office and its own zip code. Once a lively bustle of silver mining with over 300 claims, 22 saloons, hotels, lodges, red light district and one room schoolhouse. Set among the barren desert mountains of the Mojave Desert in San Bernardino County, California, giant letters spelling CALICO can be seen on the Calico Peaks behind the ghost town from the interstate 15 freeway. The prospect of Calico's fortunes in 1890 peaked an estimated population of the town to 3,500. Silver became illusive, requiring wealth seekers to branch out, plunge deeper; making life above ground dangerous with frequent cave-ins. After silver mining became unprofitable Calico was nearly forgotten except for the few residents that adapted to its harsh environment, that was lethal for women and children. After WWII was officially over the remaining wealth of Calico was nearly carried away completely by the greed of treasure seekers wandering in the desert with 4 wheel drive vehicles coming back with loads of antiques. A man by the name of Walter Marvin Knott (founder of Knott's Berry Farm) purchased the town (1951)to prevent Calico from disappearing, literally; deeding it to San Bernardino County in 1966, becoming a regional park in 1973. Pictures were taken in October 2008. Temperature was a comfortable 75 degrees under a clear blue sky.
