|Stanton is Now a A Ghost Town|
What's Stanton all ?
Stanton had its first gold strike in 1863 and used to be called Antelope Station. Charles Stanton came to town, elected himself deputy, justice of the peace and postmaster and changed the name of the town. He was not popular and was shot to death. Stanton is now private property, basically an RV park. Check to see if visitors are allowed.
How do I get to Stanton?
From Phoenix take I-17 (the Black Canyon Freeway) to U.S.60 West to Wickenburg. Take U.S.93 to State Route 89 toward Yarnell. Stanton is six miles east of Arrowhead station.
