The Calico Mountains rise out of the Mojave Desert, painted in a variety of colors, which is how they got their name. These mountains are home to Calico, a ghost town that was once a thriving mining town. As was the case with so many other mining towns, once the price of silver dropped, people started leaving. The gunfights, gambling and mining of the past just faded away. Today, it is a tourist attraction that seems to still be home for some of the spirits of its former residents. Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of the town of Calico. The Moment in Oddity features Judge Crater goes missing and This Month in History features Congress creates the Committee of Secret Correspondence. Our location was suggested by listeners Lianna Sapien, Anna Prado-Frias and Laura Rey.
