Calico Ghost Town
Yermo, CA
 
 
"Where the Past Comes Alive"

 

 

Calico is an old West mining town that has been around since 1881 during the largest silver strike in California. With its 500 mines, Calico produced over $20 million in silver ore over a 12-year span. When silver lost its value in the mid-1890's, Calico lost its population. The miner's packed up, loaded their mules and moved away abandoning the town that once gave them a good living. It became a "ghost town."

 

Walter Knott purchased Calico in the 1950's architecturally restoring all but the five original buildings to look as they did in the 1880's. Calico received State Historical Landmark 782 and in 2005 was proclaimed by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California's Silver Rush Ghost Town.Today Calico is part of the San Bernardino County Regional Parks system visited by people from around the country and all over the world. The park offers visitors an opportunity to share in its rich history and enjoy the natural beauty of the surrounding desert environment. Along with its history and attractions, Calico Ghost Town has shops, restaurants and offers camping and outdoor recreation not

not available at most of our other park facilities. www.calicotown.com

CIVIL WAR DAYS:

 

"A piece of American History traditionally takes place in the historic silver mining town of Calico Ghost Town every Presidents Day weekend. The north assaults the town defended by the south. Imagine yourself in an occupied town under martial law. Canon fortifications, hospital encampments, Robert E. Lee's makeshift headquarters and military drills are all part of the weekend town life. Abe Lincoln performs the Gettysburg Address. General Grant and troops will be arriving in town on train and on foot. Step back more than 100 years to this authentic Civil War reenactment in Calico Ghost Town."  http://www.calicotown.com/civilwar/index.html
