Once bursting with 2,000 people and 75 mines, Chloride is now home to some 300 folks, some of which are talented artists and craftsmen working from some of the historic buildings. Chloride is home to several antique and gift shops, Yesterday's Restaurant, where you can chose from over 150 different types of beer, Shep's Miner's Inn, and an RV park. You can also visit the century-old 2-cell jailhouse, the Santa Fe Railroad station, Chloride Historical Society's Jim Fritz Museum at Cyanide Springs, a cemetery that is over 100 years old and lots of ghost-town type buildings.
One thing that makes Chloride unique is its amount and quality of yard art. Two gunfight groups alternate Saturdays - "Long coats & Lace" and "The Wild Roses of Chloride". See their show at high noon each Saturday except during July & August when the show is the first & third Saturday of the month. The Wild Roses take this time off. Chloride is also famous for its Roy Purcell rock art and ancient petroglyphs. The road is accessible to high-clearance vehicles or 4-wheel drives. It is a pleasant 1.3 mile walk from town.
