Samples of Broken Glass found at Ghost Towns
The ghost towns of Columbus and Candelaria, Nevada and Congress and Octave, Arizona were hot spots for gold and silver mining. When gold was discovered, mining towns were started over night and grew to several thousand people, mostly miners, but along with the miners came those who got rich off of the miners. The saloon and brothels lined the dirt streets, each beckoning to the miners to spend their money. These early buildings were made of stone and with canvas roofs. Behind the saloons the empty spirit bottles were smashed, left as refuse. Drinking hard spirits made the miners forget the harsh desert weather, blazing hot or the chilly winds that cut to the bone. Miners would discard their empty whiskey bottles or broken porcelain plates out behind their homes. These broken glass refuse sites survived the weather and wind for a hundred years, until we discovered them.
Today, Sharon and I roam around these old mining town sites recording EVP, or ghost voices with our digital recorders. All that remain are a few stone foundations and walls, and the scattered debris of rusted cans and smashed glass bottles. It is here that we record the ghost voices from the past, as these ghostly miners still hunt for their precious yellow metal known as gold.
We have picked up broken shards of glass and tumbled them for a week to take off the rough edges. Sharon has silver wire wrapped the tumbled glass into beautiful colored glass pendants, a keepsake from real ghost towns of the Old West. Each pendant is unique and one of a kind. The size varies with each piece of shard. Sharon has also wire wrapped pieces of milk glass and porcelain pieces we found during our EVP investigation of these old ghost towns.
