The Terlingua Cemetery.

The Ghost Town

Yes, ghosts. Literallly and figuratively. Once a thriving mercury mine, home of the Chisos Mining Company, this is now a real world museum. Explore the miners' homes, marvel at the owner's hilltop mansion, and visit their church.

In the Ghost Town, admission is free. So are the fossils. Boo.
