Default Ghost Town: Stateline

Site: Stateline
County, State: Iron County, Utah
Years of Occupation: 1894 - 1918
Status of Site: Open
Classification: Class 2 – Neglected Town
Type: Mining
Remnants: business, residence and mine buildings, cemetery
GPS Coordinate: 37.9987 114.0122
Date of Last Visit: April, 2015



Above, Stateline in 1909

Stateline began with gold and silver discoveries in Stateline Canyon in 1894, with the Ophir mine opening in 1896. The population reached 300 souls, before the mines started to play out and people started to leave for greener pastures.

Some large and well preserved stone building remains make for an interesting and photogenic place to visit. The cemetery is well cared for and worth a visit as well.

To get there – coming west on highway 56 from Newcastle, continue past Beryl Junction about 16 miles to Modena, turn north on well maintained gravel road. Go north about 15 miles into Hamlin Valley, take left at major intersection and go west about 3.5 miles.

















Edit to add some more recent pictures, from April '15.
