Old Haunts

Reach for your car keys, cowboy, because hip historian Marshall Shore is putting on a slide-slinging show you won’t want to miss. As part of the exhibition “Arizona Ghost Towns: Photography of Kurt Wenner,” which will remain on view through the end of September, Shore is taking a trip through the Wild West of yesteryear with a presentation on Arizona’s most notable ghost towns. Shore will tell stories as well as exhibit photographs and artifacts that illustrate ghost town life then and now, including re-inhabited ghost towns Crown King and Vulture Mine.

After the two-hour presentation, guests can enjoy small bites provided by Big Johnson Big Apple and explore the photographic works of Kurt Wenner. Shore’s ghost town presentation happens from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 4, at the Pueblo Grande Museum, 4619 East Washington Street. Admission is free. For details, visit 602-495-0901.
