We Found a 150 year old Abandoned Town Hidden in the Arizona Mountains.

  • Published on Feb 28, 2018
  • This was probably my favorite place to explore ever. Hidden in the Arizona mountains sets Ruby, AZ the most well preserved ghost towns to exist.Also i hate that i must say this however the town was abandoned in the 40's but it was founded over 150 years ago making a 200 + year old town. So before you comment understand that.

    That's not 900'... maybe the one that is capped is. But not the one he tossed a rock and brick down. Go back with a weight on a hip chain and I bet its closer to 200-250'

    This is so heartbreaking to see all that trash left behind. I come from a culture that believes in the motto..."leave only your footprints behind", my mom who is now 85 has lived by this and so did her dad. I live in a mining town (gold) where I once worked, one mine closed around 12 years ago, the agreement that the mine owners had with the surrounding Native American reservations (mines are located on traditional hunting grounds) that when these mines closed, everything would be removed right down to chemicals or spills and they held true to those promises...but, how can we ever really know the truth what was left underground, through environmental assessments and public consultations with their environmental engineers, their reports made promis that anything that may poison the earth, ground water or environment was thoroughly cleaned, as in heavy machinery, including giant rock trucks, diamond drills, scoops, etc., apparently it was cheaper to leave all that equipment u der ground than to haul it back up, we are talking at least 5-7 miles underground, that consists of many many tunnels (I've seen the maps and photos of what was left)....though they (owners) stuck true to their promises, what was left behind wasn't only foot prints, but much much more.....getting back to this mine or ghost town, it is shocking to see trash, oils, furniture, plastics, etc., all left behind. As a First Nations person, and a full blooded Native American from the Ojibway tribe, it's disheartening to see these once beautiful lands spoilt and poisoned all for the love of money. Maybe if every person followed our motto..."leave only foot prints" , Mother Earth won't be in the shape that she's in and it's only going to get worst. We as native Americans protect our land, but most importantly we protect the waters, not just where we live, but wherever there is water, we do it for next generations and all generations to come, we do it for the animals, for the birds and the bees, literally..lol....(for without bees, our planet will die, humans will die...think about that, but that's a different story) and yes, I am a tree hugger/aka environmentalist if you will...and a vegetarian...lol....
    LETS ALL DO OUR PART...DO YOUR PART...."leave only foot prints behind"...

    There were old mining towns all over Arizona, but the BLm tore out the roads leading to them because in the 60's the Hippies were moving in and destroying them. I do have an old map with the old roads, hiking trils and old water holes marked on the map from the 30's

    Hey big guy. I'm a clairvoyant that can feel energies. I'm at the eleven minute mark watching you walk through that room/building and I can sense that there is something beneath the building that your in. I don't know what it is I just know that there is something there. It's something from the heritage of the building it's self so it could be anything. I'm just hopeing it's something significant soo the next time you look there you can look below the foundation of the building or underneith the floor boards to find it. There is something in that building though I can sense the energy of it. Also if it's legal take a metal detector through there I'm senseing alot of old coins in that area.

    The Irish did all that work. . But l can tell you they where not poisoners they where slaves . Irish knows the truth. They died all of them for years there kids just went to work when dad died. They could not leave they just told everyone they where prisoner. Only the first ones where. Then they went wow they work hard. It’s so sad how history lie about everything. I’m Irish and my family came from being a slave l can’t even find out about them. Like l don’t have a DNA. They make sure you can’t find out. But all l know is they where slaves. Ok by what they say bad people. Not.

    This is the town of Ruby.. It's somewhat of a park and requires an entrance fee to explore. It's maintained thus why it isn't tagged up or overly vandalized. While most people did leave in the 40s, it had residents up until the 80s.

      I Goggled it. The mine shut down in 1940. It may have taken years for it to finally be completely deserted, though. There are always some die-hards, clinging to what's left.

    I prefer the exploring without all the talking.. Least I made it to two minutes and seventeen seconds in, until dude started talking. I just want to explore and see! Not hear someone who loves to hear themselves talk.. Some of these people do more talking then showing and have a real hard time getting to the POINT! Bye!
