What Arizona lacks in haunted Victorian mansions, abandoned asylums, and early New England cemeteries, we make up for with ghost towns. Just in time for Halloween, the Pueblo Grande Museum is opening a new exhibition showcasing the historic and no doubt haunted structures of the Wild West of yesteryear.
“Ghost Towns of Arizona” will feature more than 40 images of decaying western relics, taken by photographer Kurt Wenner over the course of a decade. With each image of these small town wonders, Wenner aims to present the idea that “not all history is written by people who live in big cities.”
The exhibition is on display from through August of 2014 at the Pueblo Grande Museum, 4619 East Washington Street. Admission is $6 for adults with museum hours from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 1 to 4:45 p.m. Sunday. Visit www.phoenix.gov/recreation/arts/museums/pueblo or call 602-495-0901.
Mondays-Saturdays, 9:30 a.m.-4:45 p.m.; Sundays, 1-4:45 p.m. Starts: Oct. 25. Continues through Aug. 30, 2013
