Categories: Rural Land
Don’t miss this one – this is the last of the Lode Claims left in Chloride, and documented producers are an extremely rare find.
Chloride has a rich/proven mining history - it is considered the oldest continuously inhabited mining town in the state of Arizona. Located in 1870, the mines that supported Chloride were very rich indeed. The post office was established in 1873, and the town at that time had a brewery, general store, blacksmith, and several saloons. Shortly, the post office shut down, but was reestablished in 1893 when mining again resumed. At the turn of the century, there were 1500 people at Chloride. Total production from one of the mines alone was $7.5 million by 1948.
Prospectors first located mineral resources in the area in the 1840’s, including silver, gold, lead, zinc, and turquoise. Chloride was founded about 1863, but mining was not widespread until the 1870’s after a treaty was signed with the Hualapai Indians. The railway from Kingman, called the Arizona and Utah Railway, was inaugurated on August 16, 1899 - the last silver spike was driven by Miss May Krider. The town eventually grew to a peak of around 5,000 inhabitants, and at one time Chloride was the county seat. By 1917 the population had fallen to 2,000, and by 1944 it was nearly a ghost town.

ABOUT THE MINING DISTRICT
CHOLRIDE MINING DISTRICT ARIZONA
Nestled in a pocket of the Cerbat [sir-bat] Mountain Range, the town of Chloride is at an elevation of 4000'. The name Chloride came from the silver chloride found in the hills among other minerals in the area. Today, silver chloride is used in photographic emulsions and antiseptic silver solutions.
Sometime during the 1840's, prospectors canvassing the area stumbled upon numerous veins rich in silver surrounding the area that would someday become Chloride. The silver was found primarily at a site known as Silver Hill. But silver wasn't all they eventually found. Gold, lead, zinc, and turquoise were abundant in "them thar hills."
Chloride was founded about 1863, but turmoil with the Hualapai Indians slowed mining considerably. In 1870, a signed treaty with the Hualapais cleared the way for extensive mining of the area.
In 1873, the United States Post Office Department opened an office in Chloride and the Chloride Post Office has been in continuous operation since 1893 making it one of the oldest continuously operated post offices in the state of Arizona.
From 1868 to 1919, the Butterfield Stage Line serviced Chloride and surrounding area. The stage stop and repair station was located at the building presently known as Yesterday's Restaurant. In 1898, the Santa Fe Railroad began laying tracks from Kingman into Chloride. The railway station still stands today and is fairly intact. In 1910, tracks from the railway station were continued on to the Tennessee Mine, which was the largest of all mines in the area. The Santa Fe Railroad provided both passenger and cargo service until 1935 when the decision to close the station was made.
