An old gold mine was recently put up for sale in Arizona. The historic property is allegedly haunted and has a multimillion dollar price tag, according to a Zillow real estate listing.
The Octave Mine in Wickenburg, Arizona was once a flourishing gold mine in the late 1800s that produced over 200,000 ounces of gold. The mine has 25 miles of underground tunnels and comes with a 266-acre property that includes a manufactured home. The property is selling for $5,900,000 with an estimated mortgage of $22,444 per month.
When the mine was booming, the town of Octave had a post office, a general store, a stagecoach line, and a school. Now all that's left is cacti, a desolate desert, and a few of the town's ghosts.
Scottsdale real estate agent Preston Westmoreland is using a helicopter to show the property. He even takes prospective buyers underground into the dark shafts to explore the abandoned mine. The property also has an revenue-generating FM tower and features an energy-efficient home with a well.
"The Octave is one of the real big boys of the mining industry. It's attracted a lot of attention." Westmoreland said.
The Octave Mine was featured on the Syfy Channel's television show "Ghost Mine" with paranormal investigators searching for proof of the mine's "Blue Devil" ghost.
The Octave Mine is located at 14125 West Ben Jaffe Boulevard, in Wickenburg, Arizona.
