GHOST TOWN



Basically, a ghost town is any historical town or site that leaves evidence of a town’s previous glory. This could be in many forms — all businesses closed, municipal services at a minimum, rubble and old nails strewn about, ruins of former buildings, etc. Some places that are categorized as ghost towns; however, still have people living in them and though sometimes they don’t want to be called a ghost town, most historians will continue to reference them that way if the reason or purpose for it’s original « boom » is gone. This would include towns likeTombstoneArizonaCripple CreekColorado;MadridNew Mexico, and dozens of others.

Other places which are considered truly « real » ghost towns, having very little left but foundations, sometimes still make use of an old cemetery, such as ElizabethtownNew Mexico.These old sites can be wonderful places to explore as we speculate about the once vibrant lives that lived there. In other old towns, you may see former business buildings such schools and churches used as residences. A true ghost town is one that has been abandoned entirely.Philip Varney, the author of several popular ghost town books defines these old communities as: « any site that has had a markedly decreased population from its peak, a town whose initial reason for settlement (such as a mine or railroad) no longer keeps people in the community. »Varney divides ghost towns into three categories: completely deserted ghost towns like Loma Parda, New Mexico; towns with a minimal population like BodieCalifornia; and still-thriving towns like Central CityColorado.
