Calico Ghost Town

Calico, California, was a large silver mining towns in the late 1800s, but went bust at the turn of the 20th century when the price of silver dropped. In the 1950s, Walter Knott purchased the town and restored many of the old buildings to their original appearance. It was donated to San Bernadino County in 1966 and became part of the regional park system.
