By coincidence my sister and I visited Calico Ghost Town last week. It's actually very close to Barstow. It was developed as an attraction by the man who developed Knott's Berry Farm. Currently it is a San Bernardino County Park. Most of it reconstructed, but some is original. There is a mine shaft that you can visit, as well as a train that takes you around the mining area. At one point 1200 people lived there and it had its own school, as well as many saloons and brothels, just your average mining own.
