· Class$A: Barren site
· Class$B: Rubble and/or roofless building ruins
· Class$C: Classic Ghost Town – Completely abandoned town with standing buildings (some with roofs). May have a caretaker.
· Class$D: Semi/near ghost towns with a small resident population and many abandoned buildings.
· Class$E: Busy historic community, yet still has a much reduced population than in its boom years.
· Class$F: Not a stand-alonecclassification, but is an addition to any of the above. It usually designates a restored town, state park, or indicates some other “additional” status.
