Ghost Towns


An Englishman named Harry Pye, a mule skinner and prospector, was delivering freight for the U.S. Army from Hillsboro to Camp Ojo Caliente in 1879 when he discovered silver in the canyon where Chloride is now located. After completing his freighting contract, he and two others returned to the area in 1881 and staked a claim. A tent city grew up nearby and then a town, originally called Pyetown, then Bromide.

Dave and I were here over Easter weekend. This park was one of the nicest, cleanest, most reasonable priced parks we stayed at.  They had a great easter dinner for everyone. They supplied the ham, we brought the sides. Everyone was so nice and we ate, ate, and ate.
