The historic TIP TOP mine and remains of TIP TOP ghost town consists of 3 patented (private property) mining claims totaling 57.97 acres. TIP TOP is located 12 miles northwest of the Phoenix, AZ city limits.

Remains of some buildings (in the downtown area) dating back to the 1880's and remains of the old mill are on the property. There is a headframe over the main mine shaft. Cottonwood Creek with remains of a well on its bank runs through the property. Hundreds of large saguaro cacti are also on the property. The mine produced over $3 million (in late 1800's money) in silver ore prior to 1900. A 4x4 vehicle is necessary to access the property.

The price is $695,000. Reasonable offers considered. Owner will finance with easy terms.
