Site: Aragonite Alternate Names: N/A County, State: Tooele, Utah Years of Occupation: ? Status of Site: Open Classification: Class 2 - Neglected Town Type: Mining Remnants: Bunkhouse remains and a smaller building. GPS Coordinate: DD.ddd° N, DD.ddd° W Date of Last Visit: Aragonite was established in the early 1900s as a mining site for the mineral aragonite, which was used as a decorative stone in building. The town was abandoned after a short time. In it's day it was extremely remote so buildings were built to house the workers. It's not so much a town as a bunkhouse and another smaller building. Directions: I-80 exit 56 to Aragonite. Proceed south on the paved road for about 2.8 miles. Just before the Saftey-Kleen facility, there is a dirt road heading east to the mountains. About 3.6 miles up the road, you will see the remains of the old bunkhouse.
