GHOST TOWN USA’s
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.
information please feel free to contact Ghost
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.
Visit our page
explaining the various types or categories that ghost towns can be classified under.

Due to the
tremendous amount of viruses, worms and “spam,” out there, I no longer open any
e-mails on which the subject lines have “Hey”, “Hi”, “Need help”, “Help
Please,” only question marks, or blank subject lines, etc. If you do send an E-mail asking for
information, or sharing information, PLEASE indicate the appropriate ghost town AND
state name, or other topic on the
“subject” line. Thank You. GBS.
