c.1918 Arizona Ghost Town Building
Previously a stagecoach stop, a hotel, cafe and post office, this building is actually in the ghost town of Congress, not to be confused with Congress Junction. (It does get confusing because Congress was previously known as Congress Junction, but the Congress Junction of today is a community of about 1,700 people.)
The main building features several old hotel rooms, a large sitting room and 3 bathrooms. Walk through the courtyard and gate to a separate one-bedroom one-bathroom guest house.
After gold was discovered at the Congress Mine in 1884, the town of Congress boomed. In the midst of this economic boom time, our featured building was constructed in 1918. Over the years, it served in many different capacities, including the post office. After the mines closed in the mid- 1930s, the town did not last long. The post office moved to Congress Junction, and Congress became a virtual ghost town.
