GHOST TOWNS U.S.A.!!!
Ghost towns are cool AF. Transformative and history-packed, they allow you to step back in time and actually picture living during another era. You may not have realized it but the US has a higher concentration of ghost towns than any other country in the world. Some are fully abandoned, some are tourist destinations for curious visitors, and some remain occupied by a handful of residents. Check out these rad ghost towns, which are still hanging on today!
Ruby, Arizona is one of the best preserved ghost towns in Arizona, but you can only gain access to it by helping in the restoration effort. It was founded as a mining camp, producing mostly copper, lead and zinc. At its peak in the mid 30s, Ruby’s population reached 1,200. The population diminished after the mine was closed in the 50s. The few buildings that remain include the jail, a schoolhouse, mine offices and a handful of homes.
