Dead or Alive Part IV: The Native American view

Jim Hinckley
The ghostly remnants of the Painted Desert Trading Post stand as a silent guardian on a forgotten alignment of Route 66.

Flagstaff, AZ – Today, KNAU continues our series Dead or Alive, an exploration of Arizona's ghost towns. When most people think of ghost towns, they think of abandoned buildings and wooden sidewalks. But in Arizona, many ghost towns are recently deserted trading posts and ancient Native American ruins.

Our series Dead or Alive is funded in part by the Arizona Humanities Council. It was recorded and produced by Diane Hope.
