Ghost Towns

This page last updated July 24, 2003

In attempting to determine which towns to include and which to exclude I used the following methods:

I view a map of 1875 and 1895, I chose those towns listed . I then compared those found with a current day map. Any towns not listed in the current day, even though it may still be remotely running, it was then listed.

It is not that these towns are no longer there, in some instances it is simply that they are just a vague reminder of the really busy town they once were.Some may be removed if I find that they are still running towns.
Blakesburg Brick Chapel Brunertown
Clinton Falls Darwin
Fern Fincastle
Greencastle Junction Groveland Hamrick Jenkinsville Limedale
Malta Station Manhattan Morton Mount Washington New Maysville
Oakalla Pleasant Garden Portland Mills Raccoon Russelville
Springfield Vivalia West End Wheaton

If you have an additional town or information about any of these, please let me know!!
