Lake Havasu Museum of History

AZ Humanities historian Jay Mark explores more than a decade of journeys to Arizona’s ghost towns in this free program. The promise of unimaginable riches brought some of the earliest colonizers to the Arizona Territory. Communities were discovered, built and eventually dismantled. While some communities survived, such as Jerome, Tombstone and Oatman, most of them disappeared. In this presentation, learn about long-forgotten ghost towns like Charleston, Contention City, Mowry, Fairbank, Gleeson and Congress.

Arizona Humanities programs are sponsored by the Lake Havasu City Allied Arts Council, Inc. A wine and cheese reception will be held from 5:30-6:30pm  in the gymnasium at ASU Lake Havasu City, and the program will follow at 7pm.

The wine and cheese reception is free to museum members and $5 for non-members. The program is free.

Signs will be posted to direct attendees. The programs are free and open to the public. ASU Colleges at Lake Havasu City co-sponsors the programs.
