Description of Randsburg Ghost Town
The settlement of Randsburg was found in 1895
around gold mines. At its height Randsburg numbered 2500 residents. Town's history is
common in region. The Yellow Aster Mine bought rights on mining in the hills
making its owners Charles Burcham, John Singleton and Frederick Mooers
millionaires. Others were not so lucky. After over 20 million in gold were
extracted from the ground Randsburg's residents moved on elsewhere.
Technically speaking Randsburg is not a complete ghost town. Parts of the
settlements are still inhabited. However today
only few dozen remain in Randsburg and run general store and a surviving saloon.
