I was photographing the "main" street. So, I stopped in for a look. The place goes over the history of the little town which has 43 residents. It is free but they ask for a donation.

When we stepped into this little museum, we were transported back in time of the gold rush. Start your visit of Randsburg by going there.

Randsburg is a strange little place. Some will think it's cute I guess but it kind of looks like a forgotten town. There are a lot of old buildings and a western type main strip. Nothing was really open.

Its not a ghost town at all. Does not look appealing to get out and look arround. Just tourist trap.

Old West Day is on Sept. 17 this year and starts at 8:00AM with a pancake breakfast. It is listed as a one day event. I have not attended an event there so I do not know how crowded it is but the street is paved.
