Where is this?

Hint:

There’s plenty of strange architecture at Arizona’s old mining towns, including this Northwestern Arizona site. This porthole-shaped window is on an old rock house supposedly built by a U.S. Navy veteran and later used as a brothel.

Ruby. Congratulations to our winner, Griffin Davis of Tucson, Arizona.

Hint:

Near the U.S.-Mexico border, you’ll find this old mining town named for the wife of the town’s postmaster. Formerly known for murder and mayhem, the town today features numerous old buildings and a seasonal population of Mexican free-tailed bats.
