Desert Dude would stay here again

“Historical and awesome”

Reviewed Aug 25, 2017

Overall Rating

Believe it or not my Father was the last Swansea Mine operator in the early 50's. My Sister was the youngest at 4 years old. My parents and another brother lived their with no water or electricity. Back then the buildings etc were pretty much intact. Sadly since the mid sixties it has been seriously vandalized. Used to bathe in the Bill Williams River. Since 1991 I have camped and reexplored the area. The Copper was sent to Los Angeles by rail then by ship to Swansea, UK where the copper was made into wire for the first and second Atlantic Telegraph from England to America. This area was my playground as a youth. Many fond memories.
