KJZZ: Cleater, Ariz., a ghost town with a watering hole

From the broadcasters of KJZZ radio:

Arizona is full of ghost towns. Spots that were once kept alive by mining or the railroad, that have pretty much blown away in the desert wind. But a few of these hidden, historic communities have survived – including one not far from Phoenix, that’s still got a good place to get a drink.

It’s called Cleator, and if you’ve never heard about it, don’t feel bad. This collection of old, ramshackle buildings is only a 70-mile drive from Phoenix. But it’s tucked so far into the desert, you have to be looking hard to find it – which, apparently, many thirsty people are.
