Ghost towns are my most favorite sites to hunt. They are usually loaded with a large variety of relics and coins. And to top it off…its pretty easy to find out where they were. There are huge selections of ghost town books at your local library, historical museum, and online to help you locate exactly where they were. They almost always have old pictures of the towns too. All you have to do is take the time to do some research. These long lost towns are EVERYWHERE and worth the time to find out where they are. I have found quite a bit at my ghost towns, including numerous Indian Heads, large cents, shield and V nickels, but here are my favorites. So go find your closest ghost towns. You’ll be glad that you did.

Great finds, Sonya. Do the crotal bells still jingle?
Right out of college, I freelanced for a book publisher. A man I worked closely with, named Dick Miller, used to write books about Ghost Towns. I’ve never been able to find any reference of him or his books, which makes me think he wrote under a pseudonym.
The atmosphere at a Ghost Town must be full of energy!
