Ghost Town Listings


Canada is a huge country, larger than the United States.  Like the USA, plays host to thousands of ghost towns, near ghost towns, semi-ghost towns, and tiny backwater burgs that have faded greatly from their peak times. Whether they are former mining camps/towns, stagecoach stops, military posts, agricultural hamlets, roadside way stations, railroad boomtowns, or colonial settlements they all have a common thread. They were founded by a group of industrious citizens, they boomed, and when the flush times passed, they faded and began to die. Some disappeared completely, while some still have remaining buildings. Others still have a small resident population keeping a watch over things. Some may be located way out in the boonies, and others right in the heart of modern towns and cities.   

For additional information please feel free to contact Ghost Town USA. 

Wherever they are located (anywhere in the world!), and whatever remains at the site, they are still of interest to the followers of Ghost Town
USA! When you are out exploring, always remember how fragile these rickety relics are. Always treat them with respect and please abide by the Ghost Towner's Code of Ethics. In that way they may last a little longer and be available for someone else (or YOU!) to visit next year.

To sample what ghost towns are all about, visit our
Ghost Town of the Month.  Past Ghost Towns of the month are also linked in the appropriate locations, so you can also revisit and explore some of the places we’ve already visited.

Walking hand-in-hand with ghost towns are many tales of lost treasure. If you enjoy reading about these legendary stories of lost riches, visit one of
Ghost Town USA's Treasure Legends. You'll be glad you did.
