SO, WHAT IS A GHOST TOWN?

"A Ghost Town is a town or community that at one time had a commercial or population center,

and is either wholly abandoned or faded greatly from its peak, and now is just a shadow of its former self."

 

 

All ghost towns can be categorized into five basic classes based on what remains at the site.
