Vulture Mine started in 1863, after Henry Wickenburg found quartz deposits having gold in it in 1863.
Then the small town was started called Vulture City, that once had a population 5,000. The mine closed and town became a ghost town. Then a group of investor's bought the mine and called it Vulture Mining Co.
The mine closed in 1942. Now privately own and are trying to reopen it. Many more items of interest to see. .
The gates are now open on Saturdays from 9:30am to 10.00am. Very short time. We got lucky and hit it just right.
