Ghost towns come in many shapes and forms.  Some are barely bumps in the encroaching earth.  Others are collections of falling down buildings, some are still occupied by a few people, and some have more visitors and merchants during the day than they had population during their booms.  Here are some of the towns, and some web sites with more.  If you'd like us to add a town, please tell us about it by e-mail
