Default Ghost Town: Aragonite, Tooele County, Utah

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.
