Left Behind In the Cookhouse At the Abandoned Vulture Mine Near Wickenburg, Arizona




Left Behind In the Cookhouse At the Abandoned Vulture Mine Near Wickenburg, Arizona





This is a photograph that I took of an old glass-paneled cabinet left behind in the cookhouse at the abandoned Vulture Mine near the town of Wickenburg, Arizona. For years, the mine's cookhouse was a hub of activity with cooks working throughout the day preparing breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the entire mine staff to include miners, engineers, blacksmiths, mechanics, security guards, and foremen. It is amazing to think that this is still here after the cookhouse has stood empty for almost 70 years. This would be a nice antique piece if it could be restored.

The Vulture Mine was the most productive gold and silver mine in Arizona history. During its operation from 1863 until 1942, it produced 340,000 ounces of gold and 260,000 ounces of silver. However, the mine was plagued by many problems during its history. It was the target of numerous Indian attacks, raids by ruthless highwaymen, and was almost constantly subjected to the hardships related to the lack of a viable water supply. There were also numerous mining fatalities here as well as the hanging of thieves who tried to illegally mine gold (these types of thieves were known as “high graders.”) The mine was equipped with a small jail and a hanging tree to deal with such offenders.

Operations at the mine officially ceased in 1942 per executive order issued by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The miners thought that they would be returning within six months, but operations never resumed. Today, the mine is privately owned and has an eerily quiet presence to it as though everyone simply got up and walked away, leaving everything behind. The owner allows you to tour the grounds, but they inform you that you do so at your own risk because it is a dangerous place. There is still many millions of dollars worth of gold and silver there.












The Old Outhouse At the Abandoned Vulture Mine Near Wickenburg, Arizona




The Old Outhouse At the Abandoned Vulture Mine Near Wickenburg, Arizona





This is a photograph that I took of the crumbling outhouse located to the rear of one of the decrepit old buildings that once served as miner's living quarters at the abandoned Vulture Mine near the town of Wickenburg, Arizona. Miners who trekked out to this outhouse at night during the Summertime carried a pistol in case they encountered a rattlesnake on the way to take care of their business. There were no indoor toilets anywhere on the grounds of the mine.
