When the gold vein faulted, the town started to die. There was a slight resurgence between 1910 and 1926 but soon after that, everyone had left.
Today, most of the buildings have been reconstructed and serve different purposes. The Bordello to the right is a gift shop, the saloon in the top photo is a restaurant serving steaks and burgers and the jail is just for show.
There is even a gallery with art from local artists available. If you see those rugged Superstition Mountains behind the gallery, you can see there is a lot of subject matter for artists to work with in this area. Goldfield Ghost Town is a fun place to visit and if you live somewhere in the Phoenix area, it's a nice weekend day trip. You can even tour the gold mine or pan for gold.
