The ghost towns listed on this page are just a few of the hundreds of ghost towns in this State. You can discover many on your own as you drive, or hike, by paying attention to the signs that an old town is close by. Those signs, and how to look for them are described in detail in my digital eBook:
"Gone But Not Forgotten, Ghost Towns of the Eastern States."
In this book, you’ll learn how to locate the eastern ghost towns by recognizing certain signs. In this book you will also read about a real ghost town, mini cache, found by my metal detecting and good friend John.
