: Karen,

: Permission from the owners is required for a visit to Ruby. This may be obtained for a 13 dollar fee; the number is 744-4471. I think it may now be possible to pay the fee to the caretaker at the gate.

: Yes, it is worth it as there are many structures remaining in fairly good condition.

: It happens that Ruby is of most special interest to me due to a family connection. I wrote a term paper for a class on Ruby and submitted it to this site and can be found here:

: I also submitted a brochure and map:

: I have a lot of info on Ruby.

: In a word, GO! It's south of Tucson, just a couple of miles above the border, about 25 miles from the highway down a dirt road. In a Jeep, took us about 1-1/4 hrs, but is doable in a regular car.Allow maybe 3 hrs to tour the place. Pre-arrange w/ owner (520)744-4471. We went out on a Sunday morning, saw one other person as we left. Gives you a real sense of how people lived. TAKE YOUR CAMERA!
