About

Ghost towns are always a fun discussion topic. If you have ever watched a western movie, you have most likely wondered what happened to the towns those movies were filmed in or were telling the story of. Did you know that there are present day towns turning into ghost towns too?

United States Ghost Towns was started as a small side project to get a list together of ghost towns and territories to explore, photograph, and discover the history of surrounding areas. Today, United States Ghost Towns has become a large site packed full of information covering the whole nation from north to south and east coast to west coast.

If you are looking for a quick day trip, possibly a summer camping trip full of ghost story adventures, or maybe you are fascinated with history and want to learn more about your state, we hope you find what you are searching for here. It is our mission to help bring the faded away towns back to the present day and share all we know with those interested in adventure.

Browse the site and recommendations to see what you can find! Soon you will be the ghost town trivia winner at your next trivia night!
