The Chloride Chamber of Commerce is hosting their semi-annual All Town Yard Sale as usual. However mark your calendars! The date has changed! This year the sale is set for Saturday, September 29 th starting at 8 a.m. This event brings the friendly folks in historic Chloride outside, into their very own yards, to sell their antiques, collectibles and good stuff. Most likely you will find everything you ever wanted, and at bargain prices.
First stop when you get to town is either the famous Chloride Bake Sale at the corner of Tennessee Avenue and Second Street or the Mineshaft Market/Arizona Visitor Center just up the street. Get the official map of all the yard sales there, and simply follow the marked map to each of the sales.
At “High Noon” the High Desert Drifters gunfight troupe performs shoot-outs in Cyanide Springs that will take you back to the early days in Chloride. While you’re in Chloride history buffs will enjoy a visit to the Historical Society’s Jim Fritz Museum and the Silver Belle Playhouse next door. Both buildings are full of photographs and local historic memorabilia.
A must stop during your travels in Chloride is the 1800’s jail on Merrimac Avenue, then wander by the old train station on Schuylkill Avenue just around the corner. If you have an off-road vehicle or like to hike visit the petroglyphs the Hualapai Indians left behind, and the Roy Purcell murals just a short distance east of town. Check with the Visitor Center for road conditions before heading up the mountain.
After you’ve hit all the yard sales visit the numerous businesses in town. If you’re looking for handmade silver jewelry, antiques, collectibles, local ore, western art and locally made crafts, you’ll find it all in Chloride. When hunger strikes Yesterday’s Restaurant on Second Street and The Prospector Fine Food & Spirits on Tennessee Avenue will satisfy your tummy.
