Silver King
Silver King is Now a Ghost Town

What's Silver King all ?

Silver King is near Superior, AZ and is privately owned. Permission must be granted before anyone can have access. The post office at Silver King was established in 1877, and the postmaster and saloonkeeper were one and the same person. It was known as a peaceful camp. Mine production at Silver King reached its peak in 1886. There were enough people to support two hotels. The owners tried to shoot each other, but were not successful. Silver King also had a church. Vandals burned down the most famous building in Silver King.

How do I get to Silver King?

From Phoenix take I-17 (the Black Canyon Freeway) go to U.S. 60 East toward Superior. A high clearance vehicle is required.
