Cisco Ghost Town

This town was used during times of the uranium mining boom for its railroad access. Last known there were homes with grass thatch roofs. A one room post office in use until approx. 2001. There are approximately 8 buildings in Cisco. Also used for filming of several movies including Vanishing Point, Thelma and Louise, and Pontiac Moon.
