ghost town

We recently visited Garnet Ghost Town, once a thriving mining town of a 1,000 people.


People slowly started leaving after the gold rush.
The remaining people left during World War I, and after a devastating fire that took many of the homes.
The hotel was the most persevered part of the town, most of the homes seemed to be buried and some suffered fire damage. There was an eerie undertone left from the people fleeing the town. But we took interest in seeing what was left and the history of the townspeople.
