Where is this?

Hint:

Railroad workers were paid the high price of $1 a day to build an “impossible” branch line to this Central Arizona mining town in the early 1900s. Today, those who brave the road into town are royally rewarded with plenty of spooky sights.

August 2020 Contest Answer & Winner
Cherry. Congratulations to our winner, Dick Auerbach of Clinton, Montana.

Hint:

Production never lived up to speculation at this Central Arizona mining town, which is named for the trees that once grew along its creek. A handful of people call it home today, and many of its old buildings are visible on a drive through town.
