INDEX For all locations in the states of

OHIO-RHODE ISLAND, as featured in Gary’s

Ghost Town USA columns in

Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine

 

Includes the annual

Silver & Gold special issues

 

 

Along with the GPS pages, this index to all the locations featured in my magazine column should aid researchers and other ghost towners in finding the appropriate articles in which a specific location was mentioned.  Please be advised I DO NOT sell or give away copies of those articles, other than the few copies of extra magazines I have available on my website catalogue.

 

If you do not have copies of the articles, contact Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine and you can purchase the appropriate back issues from them.

 

 

Please note: 

  • This feature is being done in a tabular form to save space. 
  • A full index for all the state pages is listed below the tables.
  • Where a town has the following notice – (NO Ghost), it is not a ghost town but is either featured for its historical value, or mentioned in the article. 
  • Where there is a date like this – Aug 2008*, the * indicates a single subject feature.
  • Items marked (mention) are only mentioned in the article, without any details.
  • Where a location has – SEE Town – that is an alternative name as used in the article.
  • The Silver & Gold annual is noted below as AG&AU-year.

 

Thank you!

 

ENJOY!
