Where is this?

Hint:

These ruins used to be the walls of a jail at a Northwestern Arizona ghost town that shares its name with the mountain range in which it’s located. You wouldn’t know it from the scattered ruins found there today, but the town served as a county seat for a few years.

Where is this?

Hint:

This Southern Arizona mining camp was founded by a French Canadian, which you wouldn’t guess from its patriotic name. Its main surviving remnant is this ranch house, which once faced demolition but now has been restored into a small museum that’s open by appointment.
