is in the NW corner of Arizona, 4 miles E of US Highway 93's mile marker 53 on Chloride Road, and about 80 miles from Las Vegas border limits.
The name Chloride was taken from silver chloride found among several minerals in the area during the 1840s.
Chloride-Arizona is a very scarcely-populated town, but 20,000 tourists around the world come every year, stopping at the Visitor Center in the Mine Shaft Market, where shop owners sell jewelry and antiques.
Other events that attract tourists are the:
Twice a month old west re-enactments, Cyanide Springs mock gunfights by the world’s only female gun fighting troupe that perform funny skits on bank robberies, gun battles, catching cattle-rustlers, mock weddings, etc., Valentine’s Day pie-baking contest, St. Patrick Day’s fair, all-town yard sale on May & October, and its biggest event - the Old Miners Day in June features parades, mock gunfights, raffles, bazaar sales.
And you may wanna spend Christmas in Chloride too. Free desserts and beverages.
Upon leaving US Highway 93, it’s an open range for cattle that wind around, and take this - they have the right-of-way!
So before you take those pictures, make sure you stay in your vehicle. Better yet, don’t feed or honk those horns while the slow-moving red bull is crossing!
