See Swansea in March

The BLM Lake Havasu Field Office will present guided tours of the historic Swansea Mining Town site from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. each Tuesday throughout the month of March.

You will see remnants of a small town that began 100 years ago and became known for its copper mining and smelter. The Swansea site is located southeast of Parker, Arizona. Take Highway 95 to Shea Road, turn east, and follow signs to Swansea (graded dirt road until the last five miles). A high clearance vehicle is helpful but not required. Please bring water and hiking shoes.

For more information on these tours, please contact Dr. George Shannon, BLM Archaeologist, at 928-505-1255, or BLM Volunteer Mike Riddle, 928-716-2723, .
