|Octave is Now a Ghost Town|
What's Octave all ?
The mine at Octave is traced back to 1863. After producing millions of dollars worth of profits, the Octave mine was closed in 1942. There were various buildings in the town, but only one standing building remains. Octave is near the towns of Stanton and Weaver. Octave was known for its Friday Night dances. The land in Octave is privately owned.
How do I get to Octave?
From Phoenix take I-17 (the Black Canyon Freeway) to U.S.60 West to Wickenburg. Take U.S.93 to State Route 89 past Congress and take the turnoff toward Stanton and Weaver. Octave is at the end of the road. A high clearance vehicle is required.
