Many villages were settled but never grew into larger towns for a variety of reasons. Some of these "Ghost Towns" still have a few homes and maybe a business, but are unincorporated communities. Others have no signs of ever existing and are truly ghosts of their former selves.
The map below is a work in progress but includes a layer with information about ghost towns in the region. If you know of any ghost towns we should add, please let us know. Click the map to open an interactive version and click the "Ghost Towns" layer on the left side of the page.
