American ghost towns

America is rich in history with an abundance of stories that still fascinates millions to this day. I , myself think of ghost towns as a a beautiful piece of art, standing still in time. How can such innocuous buildings draw so much attention? With even such brutal and harsh landscapes , people became tough enough to travel to these unknown territories. What could possibly make people go the distance? A lust for wealth and a new beginning for miners, settlers, families and others.

Here is a list of American ghost towns to check out!
