Here's a few lesser known but important ones from Arizona:

Charleston. Near Tombstone. Was sufficently lawless and rough that it regularly made the papers back East. Destroyed in an 1887 earthquake. Just ruins today.

The Vulture Mine and Vulture City. In the 1880's to about 1930 was the largest gold mine in the US. At its peak Vulture City had over 5,000 residents. The mine operated into the late 40's.

Harshaw: A mining town for silver rivaling Tombstone. By 1890 the town was all but abandoned as the mines played out.

Crown King: 15 Gold mines surrounded this town which at its height had over 500 buildings including 2 Chinese resturants. It was an early user of electricity and electrified by 1897. The post office closed in 1954.

Congress. Another gold mining town. Current population is about 1700.

Stanwix Station: This is the site of the western most Civil War skirmish / battle.
