Directions to Vulture Mine at Wickenburg | Arizona

The Hanging Tree is a three hundred year old ironwood tree found right in front of Henry Wickenburg’s cabin. The terrifying legend behind the Hanging Tree tells of a tragic story when 18 miners were caught stealing gold deposits from Vulture Mine. After their capture, they were supposedly hanged on Hanging Tree to warn other miners of the consequences of stealing. The Hanging Tree is now said to be haunted by these miners who were hung. Many tourists have reported hearing footsteps around the tree and rocks being thrown at them.
