Ghost Towns of America East

Ghost towns of America east do exist. However, they are different than the better known western ghost towns.

What Is The Difference Between Eastern And Western Ghost Towns?

The difference between the ghost towns of the east, and the old towns that are located in our western states is this, the ghost towns of the east are no longer visible. Today, the only clue that a home, or a town once existed, is nothing more than a hole in the ground…these empty holes are cellar holes. The cellar holes are what are left of the houses that once sat on top of them.

Get Permission, and Know The Law
Whether you want to search out the eastern ghost towns, or travel to the existing, abandoned western towns, this is an exciting adventure that can lead to some interesting experiences and treasures.
