    Fairbank, Arizona is about 20 miles southwest of Tombstone. Silver ore from Tombstone mines was sent there to be processed in mills along the San Pedro river and there was a railroad until 1966. Fairbank is now a ghost town, BLM protected. A beautiful cemetery is a short mile hike away. This was a very quiet treasure to find.

      Very interesting, my kind of place. Have not explored east of Tucson. Phoenix area has some a fair amount of antique malls.

      Lost and forgotten...I have mixed feelings, but an incredible find along your journey. Looks very small. Oldest grave?

      Thanks friends for your loves - Vynil, AnythingObscure, Kevin, Thomas!!

      Fort - Yes, it was such a great ghost town. No crowds there while Tombstone had crowds and touristy stuff. Even there a very good Courthouse museum and the Good Enough mine, so not just OK Corral. I saw antique malls in Bisbee but closed at 5 pm....timing is everything when traveling isn't it? I wanted to go to Phoenix' Heard Museum - next time. My company wouldn't cash out my vacation so I still have to use (or lose) 12 days before 2021. Another weird deal.

      Eileen - Some of the graves are visited. I imagine by family members. Yes, it was a bit sad but it was on a hill overlooking beautiful valleys. I believe the oldest was 1880's. Most graves only had piles of rocks, nothing more.

      Phil - Agree and really love these little cemetaries, so beautiful!

      Thanks Bill for your love of this treasure. I am sure family or at the very least former residents of Fairbank come up to clean, spruce, put up a newer wood cross, sweep rocks together again. It is such a cool, quiet and beautiful place.
