Randsburg Ghost Town

Get ready for an exciting workshop photographing old buildings, cars, and landscapes!

Gold was discovered at Rand Mine in 1895 and a mining camp quickly formed, and was named Rand Camp, named after the gold mining region in South Africa. The first post office at Randsburg opened in 1896.

The town has an influx of tourism throughout the year, mainly from fall through spring. The center for most tourists is the general store/ice cream parlor. Famous for their 1904 soda fountain and “Black Bart” banana split dessert, the general store still sells food, necessities, and antiques from the area. The town has antique stores, art galleries, gift shops, a mining museum, and an old jail open to tourists. The Randsburg General Store is open every day except Tuesday and Wednesday. The museum and all other businesses, including the town’s two watering holes, are open on the weekends.
