See Photos from our St. Elmo Visit Here: http://bit.ly/St-Elmo-CO St. Elmo was first named Forest City but was later changed because of a California town with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was at the time reading the novel "St. Elmo". At its peak in the 1890s, the town boasted a general store, telegraph office, town hall, Over 5 hotels, a handful of saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a schoolhouse. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo (Yes, it's the same South Park you are thinking of). There were 150 mines claimed within St. Elmo. The majority of the folks who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the biggest and most productive mine in the area. While in operation, the Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold. While the other local mines shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the "gold standard" was implemented. Which collapsed the price of silver overnight. As a result. The Railroad was closed and eventually abandoned in 1922. Even after the world gave up on this town and its mines, people continued to harvest ore. This was done by hand and miners would haul individual mining carts down the mountain. Once the mining industry closed completely, St. Elmo drastically declined. Miners searched elsewhere for gold, rather than silver. The business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. The current population is...three. Have more information about St. Elmo? Want to share?

From abandoned mining towns with no more gold, to haunted places, here are 10 Mysterious Ghost towns in the US GET TO DYNAMITE TV AND SUBSCRIBE ! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJf35rv_-9uZiXjOi51t3JQ Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. Thurmond West Virginia Once a thriving center of Coal mining in West Virginia, Thurmond was a prosperous place of commerce and businesses along the Ohio Railway. It popped up in the 1880’s in the center of the state and consisted of popular hotels, casinos, banks, schools. It was a fairly well organized city with strict laws on drinking. In 1888 a rail station was built which allowed for tourism in the area and also to carry the coal out of the hills. The population reached a peak of 462 people 1930 but steady downfall would occur not too long after. A popular hotel was burnt to the ground which which had startled much of the population and would finally reach 0 in the year 2000. You can see the contrast between the cities built out in the west and out in the east during this time. There was much more technological advancements and the addition of coal to a city at this period of time would allow them to heat their homes. Surprisingly the city hasn’t received too many vandals and much of it’s past is preserved. 4. Salton Sea Gallons of water were sent gushing into a dry lake bed after a storm caused an irrigation canal to flood and break in the Colorado River. So the Salton Sea is basically lucky to exist in that sense. A resort town was built near this body of water, which became a popular location for boating. Many people once flocked here to soak up the sun, go jet skiing and drive fancy yachts in the booming 50’s and 60’s. Stars like the Beach Boys and Bono would encore this lake, right in the heart of California’s desert. It’s probably now the last place you’d want to go on vacation unless you enjoy putrid odors and some of those boats are left abandoned on this decaying lake.. Not all good things last forever and this place quickly turned into an ecological nightmare due to pesticides and fertilizers from nearby farms and the irrigation system. It’s seen as one of California’s biggest environmental blunders of all time It became much too polluted to sustain life even for fish. The inhabitants quickly fled once the smell of the water became unbearable. To this day, dead fish litter the once popular beaches, leaving a rotten egg like smell that would be enough to scare off any urban explorer and it’s certainly not good for tourism. The size of the lake continues to shrink even in 2017 and the smell of rotting fish will continue to get worse. 3. St Elmo Colorado Don’t forget the rockie mountains also have their fair share of gold as well. And where there was once gold, there are abandoned towns.This places is located in the Sawatch Mountains and features well-preserved wooden buildings from the 1880’s after the gold and silver mines sprung up. The town had a general store, a town hall, 5 hotels, dancing halls and saloons during it’s peak around the 1890’s the resources were mined and not much else was left, the railroad was closed so no one kept on coming here. Some residents seemed to stay until 1952 when the postal service was cut off. If you don’t mind high elevation at 9,961 feet, this might be an enjoyable place to visit and it’s our ghost town with the highest elevation on this list.. It’s also one of Colorado’s maintained ghost towns. 2. Virginia City, Nevada Virginia city grew quickly in the 1850’s and 60’s after the huge discovery of the comstock lode which was a major silver deposit in the sierra nevada mountains,. But once the silver was gone, everyone fled the city. You can actually explore one of our most mysterious ghost towns in the US on google maps. Check out the entire well preserved ghost town of Virginia City, which is also rumored to be one of the most haunted places in the US. Besides some of the modern day vehicles, this place is exactly the way it was over 100 years ago and it’s the most haunted place in Nevada. Some ghost towns are quite as accessible on google maps, and this is one of the more detailed ones we were able to find. Ignore the motorcycles and get a good feel for how historic site would have looked, when miners were sifting the the hills in search of gold. Drop into the Silver Terrace cemetery for a creepy flash from the past!

Ghost Towns of Colorado, United States
 
04:01
Ghost Mining Towns of Colorado, United States 2005 - Vicksburg, Winfield, Clear creek canyon, Rockdale-Silverdale Colorado has over 1,500 ghost towns. Currently only about 640 remain. Due to incomplete records and legends that are now accepted as fact, no list will ever be complete. Ghost towns are predominantly of few reasons: mining towns, abandoned when the mines closed; many due to the devaluation of silver in 1893, mill towns that were abandoned when the mining towns closed, farming towns on the eastern plains deserted due to rural depopulation, coal towns abandoned when the coal, or need for it ran out, stage stops abandoned when the railroad came through, and the rail stops that were deserted when then railroad changed routes or abandoned the spurs. Some were resort towns which never brought in enough tourists. One or two were caused by the creation of reservoirs, or covered in mining tailings. https://youtu.be/SDBPiGZICQ4 Ghost Towns of Colorado

8 Forgotten Abandoned Places in America
 
08:53
From desert ghost towns and mines; to hidden metropolitan locations; these are 8 Forgotten Abandoned Places in America 8. Glenrio | TEXAS, NEW MEXICO | Don’t STOP, KEEP GOING Even google decided not to drive through this area again, look at the quality of the pictures, so 2007 ! Glenrio was originally known as Rock Island, it was founded over 1,000,000 …. Hours ago. (120 years), if you can’t do the math in your head, the year was 1903. What made this ghost town popular was its prime location, half of it being in Texas, and the other half in New Mexico, it was also a pitstop on the famous Route 66. Many people find beauty in the abandoned gas station and surrounding buildings, others try to scurry away as fast as possible. 7. Clairton | Pennsylvania What used to be…. Clairton is the home of the largest coke manufacturing facility in the U.S.A, and no, we are not talking about the Refreshing Soft Beverage Coca Cola; rather, the “fuel” created from black coal. It is used in the manufacturing of steel. Clairton is one of those towns that you hear about on the news, you know, “coal country” or in this case its better to say “steel country” . Traveling around the town on google maps, you can see many abandoned homes, overgrown sidewalks, just avenues of broken dreams. Perhaps the most striking neighbourhood is located on Lincoln Way, every house on this street was abandoned… No one really wants to talk about it; or even give exact reasons as to why this neighbourhood was affected so much more than the rest... In 2015, Lincoln Way was ravaged by a fire, some of the 30 or so homes were completely destroyed. Local authorities have vehemently opposed any stories about supposed hauntings or ghosts, “I don’t know where people are getting these stories. People are listening to them and then they’re running with it….. This town has a lot of good history. But as far as Lincoln Way is concerned, I don’t know why it stands out.” Maybe because a streetful of people decided to leave ? Granted it wasn’t an overnight operation… but still, makes you wonder. 6. Sideling Hill Tunnel | PENNSYLVANIA See you on the other side In the 1940s the Pennsylvania Turnpike was nicknamed the “Tunnel Highway”, having not 6, not 8 but 7 tunnels in its path ! By the 70s the road was so busy that expansions had to be made. Some smart people did some math and found out that the best thing to do was to bypass 3 tunnels; and merge the other 4. At this point, Sideling Hill Tunnel became a post apocalyptic dream location; no traffic, no people, just you and the dilapidated road. The site was used to train soldiers for the iraq war; policemen used parts of it as a shooting range and a small company called Pike 2 Bike tried to make it a tourist destination. Oh yeah, almost forgot, the critically acclaimed movie The Road also shot a bunch of scenes there! 5. Two Guns | ARIZONA 4. Animas Forks | COLORADO This picturesque deserted mine is hidden along the Alpine Loop in Colorado. The first settlers came around 1873; and it took only a few years for Animas Forks to become a full fledged community. Just like most bustling mine towns of the time; as soon as the profits dried up, so did the town. These days; Animas Forks is owned and operated by the Bureau of Land Management. QUICK QUESTION: How much land does the BLM own ? About 247.3 Million Acres; or about ⅛ of the country. Anytime you are driving through the middle of nowhere USA and wonder who owns the land; chances are it's the BLM. 3. Pleasure Beach | CONNECTICUT 2. Grain Silos | INDIANA What is the most forgettable state? Seriously; what do you think the most forgettable state is ? Comment away ! Indiana is home to hundreds of abandoned grain silos that have somehow managed to survive longer than their surrounding communities. A great example is Corwin; Indiana. Apparently; its not even a ghost town; being described as an “extinct” town…. Hmmmmm. We also have the town of Sloan ; Dunn ; and many many more. 1.1964 New York World’s Fair Pavilion | NYC

Centralia Burning Ghost Town - Pennsylvania USA
 
04:26
Centralia, Pennsylvania was nearly entirely evacuated following a coal mine fire, burning beneath the town since 1962. Centralia’s fire started in 1962, when residents turned an old strip mine into a dump, and setting the rubbish alight. The fire spread through an unsealed opening to the underground coal mines, igniting a seam of coal, and the fire has been burning to this day. In 1992, Pennsylvania condemned the town and claimed it under eminent domain in an attempt for force the remaining residents out. Some sued, and were allowed to stay. A section of State Route 61 was abandoned after it began to buckle and crumble from the underground fire. The fire stretches 12km, and burns underneath an area of 15 square kilometres, 300 feet below ground, authorities say the fire could burn for another 250 years. The town now mostly attracts tourists who visit an abandoned highway, where many profanities and obscene pictures are spray painted onto it, over time the highway has earned the nickname Graffiti Highway. Centralia is rumored to have inspired Silent Hill.

Ghost Towns: Abandoned But Not Forgotten
 
03:35
These towns, often far off the beaten path and rooted in the mining industry, couldn't survive when the gold, silver, copper, and coal were gone. Check out the stories behind these boom-towns. For more stories --- http://allday.com/ Follow our twitter accounts --- https://twitter.com/historyinpics Follow our Instagram -- http://instagram.com/historyphotographed -- http://instagram.com/itsabandoned 1. Goldfield, Arizona Goldfield, Arizona, as the name suggests, was a gold town that thrived in the 1890s, but was abandoned by the late 1920s. Today, Goldfield has been reconstructed as a tourist stop, with a focus on kitsch rather than historical accuracy. Rhyolite, Nevada Rhyolite, Nevada was named for silica-rich volcanic rock in its corner of Death Valley, and saw significant investment from Charles M. Schwab in the early 20th century. By 1907, the town even had its own stock exchange, but its population dwindled in the years afterward. Terlingua, Texas Terlingua, Texas was built up around mercury mining in the mid-1880s, but was abandoned in the 1940s when production dwindled. Today, Terlingua is mostly a tourist destination for visitors to nearby Big Bend National Park. Bodie, California The town of Bodie, California was founded in 1859 and was once California's third-largest city behind San Francisco and Sacramento. The town closed in 1962 after the local gold mine stopped producing and has since become a attraction for tourists. Thurmond, West Virginia During the heyday of coal mining in West Virginia, Thurmond was a prosperous town, but its population dwindled into the single digits by the 2000s. Today, much of Thurmond is owned by the U.S. National Park Service. Calico, California Calico, California was a booming silver-mining town during the 1880s, but was totally abandoned by 1907. Calico underwent extensive restoration in the 1950s under the direction of Walter Knott, of Knott’s Berry Farm fame, and became a tourist attraction for the state. Thistle, Utah The primary industry was servicing steam trains for rail companies, and saw a decline during the switch-over to diesel engines. The real incident that killed the town, however, was a 1983 landslide that flooded the city. Much of it remains submerged today. Virginia City, Montana Virginia City, Montana was founded on gold mining in 1863, but the gold ran out by the end of the century and the town was abandoned. Today Virginia City is owned by the state of Montana, and serves as a tourist stop for travelers headed for Yellowstone National Park. Kennecott, Alaska The copper mine in Alaska produced $200 million worth of copper ore between 1911 and 1938, but was too remote to survive when the mine ran dry in the early 40s. Kennecott became a tourist landmark by the 1980s, and was designated a historic landmark. Written By: Shea Huffman Edited By: Charlie Benavides Image Credit: Getty Images Music: YouTube Music Library

Kurchatov, Kazakhstan If you enjoy a deserted town with a ton of dark history than you may want to check out the town of Kurchatov in eastern Kazakhstan. It once served as the headquarters for the Soviet Union's atomic bomb testing program. Hirta Island, Scotland St Kilda is a small group of four islands in the North Atlantic where its nearest neighbor lies 40 miles to the west, Na h-Eileanan Siar in Scotland. And beyond St Kilda would be Labrador, Canada. Kayakoy, Turkey Originally this town was called Karmylassos by the Greeks and built in the 1700s. It was home to around 20,000 Greek Orthodox residents during the early twentieth century, but World War I and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire meant land was up for grabs during the Greco-Turkish War. St. Elmo, Colorado St. Elmo is quite possibly one of America's best-preserved ghost towns, it's one frozen in time and history. The town was founded in 1880 during the gold rush days and during its peak it had about 2,000 people who were there specifically for mining both gold and silver. Vallone dei Mulini, Sorrento, Italy Italy is home to some of the world's best ruins, but it's the valley of the mills in particular we found rather enchanting. The buildings around Vallone dei Mullini are haunting and seem to be part of some extraordinary ancient ruins, although they were only abandoned in the twentieth century. Gouqi Island, China Gouqi Island may look like it should be part of the cover of the Emerald City for Wizard of Oz, but it's actually a real place which belongs to a group of about 400 islands known as Shengsi Islands.

St Elmo Historic District (Ghost Town)
 
08:57
St. Elmo is a ghost town in Chaffee County, Colorado, United States. Founded in 1880, St. Elmo lies in the heart of the Sawatch Range, 20 miles (32 km) southwest of Buena Vista and sits at an elevation of 9,961 feet (3,036 m). Nearly 2,000 people settled in this town when mining for gold and silver started. The mining industry started to decline in the early 1920s, and in 1922 the railroad discontinued service. The community is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the St. Elmo Historic District. It is one of Colorado's best preserved ghost towns. St. Elmo was originally named Forest City but was later changed because of the multitude of towns with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was reading a novel with the same title. The town was at its peak in the 1890s, when it included a telegraph office, general store, town hall, 5 hotels, saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a school house. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo. There were 150 patented mine claims within the area. The majority of the people who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the largest and most successful mine in the area. The Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold while it was in operation. While the other mines eventually shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the railroad was abandoned in 1922. Once the mining industry shut down, St. Elmo drastically declined in population. Miners searched elsewhere for gold and silver and the business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. Even though St. Elmo is considered a ghost town it is still inhabited. Tourism brings many people to the St. Elmo area every year. The old mining roads are now used as Jeep and four-wheeler trails. There are also many good places to fish along Chalk Creek, which runs through St. Elmo. The general store is open during the summer, when tourists can rent four-wheelers or buy items. Many of the buildings are still intact. However, the town hall and a few other buildings burnt down in 2002. Buena Vista Heritage is rebuilding the town hall to its original state.

Lost in Ghost Town of Eagle Mountain FPV
 
01:20
Eagle Mountain, California, is a modern-day ghost town, in the Colorado Desert, in Riverside County founded in 1948 by noted industrialist Henry J. Kaiser. The town is located at the entrance of the now-defunct Eagle Mountain iron mine, once owned by the Southern Pacific Railroad, then Kaiser Steel, and located on the southeastern corner of Joshua Tree National Park. The town's fully integrated medical care system, similar to other Kaiser operations in California, was the genesis of the modern-day Kaiser Permanente health maintenance organization.[1] Eagle Mountain is accessible by Riverside County Route R2, twelve miles (19 km) north of Desert Center, midway between Indio and the California/Arizona state line along Interstate 10. The town's relative youth and brief time of abandonment make Eagle Mountain among the country's best preserved ghost towns. Aerial cinematography by Skyecam Drone Crew. http://www.skyecam.com

Old, historic 1883 mining town
 
06:25
Welcome to the old, historic mining town of Ironton (Townsite), Colorado - founded in 1883. Although this little town and its wonderful housing structures are collapsing - I still consider this place immensely beautiful and fascinating. (You can almost imagine daily life here - with the townsfolk going about their daily tasks...the harsh winters that they must've endured...the hard work put forth into the mines.)

Top 10 Ghost Towns in the World HD 2015
 
03:55
Top 10 Ghost Towns in the World 2015 HD 1080p 1. Kayakoy, Anatolia, Turkey In 1923, the Greco-Turkish war had ended, at that time nearly a million Greeks were living in Turkey. Upon the conclusion of the war, all of them were sent back to their homeland. Because of this, it forced towns like Kayakoy (a town of roughly 2,000 Greeks) to be completely abandoned. The remains of the village have been preserved as a historical site and even to this day, many tourist go and visit the area. 2. Herculaneum, Naples, Italy Once a wealthy Roman seaside resort of Herculaneum, this town was buried under ash and rock in A.D. 79 because Mount Vesuvius decided it was time to erupt. To this day there are excavations done by archaeologists at this tie, all the time. They have come across a rather fascinating list of objects including: private villas, shops, bathhouses, and an incredible range of everyday objects. 3. Pyramiden, Svalbard, Norway Once an arctic coal mining town controlled by the U.S.S.R, this town has seen better days. This place did go thru it's hayday, however. In a past life it was a premiere Soviet settlement, fully set with with worker's barracks, a sports center, and dire love for their leader Lenin. The mine is now a true ghost town with the buildings, including a library full of books, a theater, and a music hall with the world's northernmost grand piano, have been left as they were when the town was abandoned in 1998. 4. Bodie, California Once a booming gold mining town, and home to over 8,000 residents, Bodie used to be a rather hoppin' town. According to legend, this town was quite famous in the late 1800s for gunfights and brawls. In the 1880s the mines had been largely depleted and the people began to flee town, ending in complete abandonment. The 150ish buildings still left standing in Bodie are almost exactly how the residents left them. 5. Humberstone and Santa Laura, Atacama Desert, Chile Humberstone and Santa Laura are sister towns that were mainly used by saltpeter miners. They were both abandoned by 1958. The buildings have preserved well thru time and the main attractions include a theater with its original chairs, houses, a cast-iron swimming pool made from the hull of a ship, a hotel, and grocers' shops complete with price lists. 6. Bhangarh, Rajasthan, India Bhangarh was once the local capital of northwestern India. In 1720s, however, the town was conquered by the raja of Jaipur. Because of this, residents quickly deserted the town. Legend contests that this town is severely haunted and there are even crazier stories surrounding the city's rise and extremely rapid decline. 7. Wenzhou, China The super rich in China are doing what the super rich every else in the world are not. They are investing in multi-billion dollar construction projects that are throwing up gigantic cities all over the country. The only problem with this? No one is moving to them. Wenzhou can hold close to 2 million people, and yet only 20-30 thousand live there. That is good enough for me to consider it a ghost town. 8. St. Elmo, Colorado A more traditional ghost town resides in St. Elmo, Colorado. Just like other ghost towns on the west coast of the USA, St. Elmo was once a booming mining town. It was also an ideal trading post along the railroad routes running thru central Colorado. When the railway shut down in 1922, it forced the entire town to shut down as the money was just not there anymore. 9. Chaco Canyon, New Mexico A.D. 800-1100 was the time in which the Chaco civilization was hoppin'. Through this time, the historic canyon served as a ceremonial, civic, and commercial center. If you are thinking about making a trip there, there is a perfect 9 mile (14km) paved loop road that runs through the canyon. It is quite spectacular, really. 10. Ordos, China Another one of China's infamous failed construction residential project cities, Ordos is quite astonishing, and is quite possibly the largest bust of any Chinese ghost town. Built to hold well over 2.5 million people, there a barely even 25 thousand residents. Not to mention a LARGE percentage of the skyscrapers aren't even being finished. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Undiscovered Places to Visit Now 2018 HD" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqrBVPVw3pg -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Cripple Creek Colorado, United States

Cripple Creek Colorado. United States 2005. The City of Cripple Creek is the Statutory City that is the county seat of Teller County, Colorado, United States.[6] The city population was 1189 at the 2010 United States Census. Cripple Creek is a former gold mining camp located 44 miles (71 km) southwest of Colorado Springs near the base of Pikes Peak. The Cripple Creek Historic District, which received National Historic Landmark status in 1961, includes part or all of city and includes surrounding area. The city is now a part of the Colorado Springs, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows. Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs. https://youtu.be/sqlDVf_0Ew4 Cripple creek colorado

Thanks for watching...... 1) Butler 2) Cades Cove 3) Devonia 4) Elkmont 5) Fork Mountain 6) Loyston 7) Morganton 8) Rhea Springs 9) Wheat Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ghost_towns_in_the_United_States The exact definition of a ghost town varies between individuals, and between cultures. Some writers discount settlements that were abandoned as a result of a natural or human-made disaster, using the term only to describe settlements which were deserted because they were no longer economically viable; T. Lindsey Baker, author of Ghost Towns of Texas, defines a ghost town as "a town for which the reason for being no longer exists".[1] Some believe that any settlement with visible tangible remains should not be called a ghost town;[2] others say, conversely, that a ghost town should contain the tangible remains of buildings.[3] Whether or not the settlement must be completely deserted, or may contain a small population, is also a matter for debate.[2] Generally, though, the term is used in a looser sense, encompassing any and all of these definitions. The American author Lambert Florin's preferred definition of a ghost town was simply "a shadowy semblance of a former self". Factors leading to abandonment of towns include depleted natural resources, economic activity shifting elsewhere, railroads and roads bypassing or no longer accessing the town, human intervention, disasters, massacres, wars, and the shifting of politics or fall of empires.[5] A town can also be abandoned when it is part of an exclusion zone due to natural or man-made causes. Ghost towns may result when the single activity or resource that created a boomtown (e.g., nearby mine, mill or resort) is depleted or the resource economy undergoes a "bust" (e.g., catastrophic resource price collapse). Boomtowns can often decrease in size as fast as they initially grew. Sometimes, all or nearly the entire population can desert the town, resulting in a ghost town. The dismantling of a boomtown can often occur on a planned basis. Mining companies nowadays will create a temporary community to service a mine site, building all the accommodation shops and services, and then remove it as the resource is worked out. A gold rush would often bring intensive but short-lived economic activity to a remote village, only to leave a ghost town once the resource was depleted. In some cases, multiple factors may remove the economic basis for a community; some former mining towns on U.S. Route 66 suffered both mine closures when the resources were depleted and loss of highway traffic as US 66 was diverted away from places like Oatman, Arizona onto a more direct path. The Middle East has many ghost towns that were created when the shifting of politics or the fall of empires caused capital cities to be socially or economically non-viable, such as Ctesiphon.

Some writers discount settlements that were abandoned as a result of a natural or human-made disaster, using the term only to describe settlements which were deserted because they were no longer economically viable; T. Lindsey Baker, author of Ghost Towns of Texas, defines a ghost town as "a town for which the reason for being no longer exists".[1] Some believe that any settlement with visible tangible remains should not be called a ghost town;[2] others say, conversely, that a ghost town should contain the tangible remains of buildings.[3] Whether or not the settlement must be completely deserted, or may contain a small population, is also a matter for debate.[2] Generally, though, the term is used in a looser sense, encompassing any and all of these definitions. The American author Lambert Florin's preferred definition of a ghost town was simply "a shadowy semblance of a former self". Factors leading to abandonment of towns include depleted natural resources, economic activity shifting elsewhere, railroads and roads bypassing or no longer accessing the town, human intervention, disasters, massacres, wars, and the shifting of politics or fall of empires.[5] A town can also be abandoned when it is part of an exclusion zone due to natural or man-made causes. Ghost towns may result when the single activity or resource that created a boomtown (e.g., nearby mine, mill or resort) is depleted or the resource economy undergoes a "bust" (e.g., catastrophic resource price collapse). Boomtowns can often decrease in size as fast as they initially grew. Sometimes, all or nearly the entire population can desert the town, resulting in a ghost town. The dismantling of a boomtown can often occur on a planned basis. Mining companies nowadays will create a temporary community to service a mine site, building all the accommodation shops and services, and then remove it as the resource is worked out. A gold rush would often bring intensive but short-lived economic activity to a remote village, only to leave a ghost town once the resource was depleted. In some cases, multiple factors may remove the economic basis for a community; some former mining towns on U.S. Route 66 suffered both mine closures when the resources were depleted and loss of highway traffic as US 66 was diverted away from places like Oatman, Arizona onto a more direct path. The Middle East has many ghost towns that were created when the shifting of politics or the fall of empires caused capital cities to be socially or economically non-viable, such as Ctesiphon.

Picher, Oklahoma, abandoned town, EPA superfund site, sinkholes - from a drone's perspective
 
10:15
Picher is a ghost town and former city in Ottawa County, Oklahoma, United States. This was a major national center of lead and zinc mining at the heart of the Tri-State Mining District. More than a century of unrestricted subsurface excavation dangerously undermined most of Picher's town buildings and left giant piles of toxic metal-contaminated mine tailings (known as chat) heaped throughout the area. The discovery of the cave-in risks, groundwater contamination, and health effects associated with the chat piles and subsurface shafts resulted in the site being included in 1980 in the Tar Creek Superfund Site by the US Environmental Protection Agency. The state collaborated on mitigation and remediation measures, but a 1996 study found that 34% of the children in Picher suffered from lead poisoning due to these environmental effects, which could result in lifelong neurological problems.[4] Eventually the EPA and the state of Oklahoma agreed to a mandatory evacuation and buyout of the entire township. The similarly contaminated satellite towns of Treece, Kansas and Cardin, Oklahoma were included in the Tar Creek Superfund site. A 2006 Army Corps of Engineers study showed 86% of Picher's buildings (including the town school) were badly undermined and subject to collapse at any time.[5] The destruction of 150 homes by an EF4 tornado in May 2008 accelerated the exodus. On September 1, 2009, the state of Oklahoma officially dis-incorporated the city of Picher, which ceased official operations on that day. The population plummeted from 1,640 at the 2000 census to 20 at the 2010 census. As of January 2011, only six homes and one business remain, their owners having refused to leave at any price. Except for some historic structures, the rest of the town's buildings were scheduled to be demolished by the end of the year. One of the last buildings, which had housed the former Picher mining museum was destroyed by arson in April 2015. Fortunately, its historical archives and artifacts had previously been shipped elsewhere. Picher is among a small number of locations in the world (such as Gilman, Colorado, Centralia, Pennsylvania, and Wittenoom, Western Australia) to be evacuated and declared uninhabitable due to environmental and health damage caused by the mines the town once serviced.

ABANDONED MINE!!
 
08:06
Started the day off getting the ATV's serviced and ready to ride... We drove out to Nelson, NV and took a ride to the Colorado River. The views were amazing and along the way we came across a few abandoned mines. I plan on stopping back out to revisit one of mines with another youtuber in the near future!! We found one of Adam the Woo's old hats! JP IDK...looks like one he would wear! #LiLV - Living in Las Vegas - MotoVlog #002 Quads - Polaris 500 Scramblers Dirt Bike - Yamaha WR450f Cameras - GOPro Hero 4, Lumix DZ200 Thanks for Watching!!

Fantastically Preserved Old Mine Out In The Desert
 
26:11
It is a rare treat to come across an abandoned mine that is preserved as well as this one. Taking the age of this mine into account, having the mining equipment still in working order, having all of those tools still around, still being able to read the paperwork left inside the mine – that’s pretty extraordinary stuff when compared to most abandoned mines (and we’ve been to quite a lot of them now). We primarily have the dry desert conditions to thank for the mine being in this state as well as the fact that it is exceedingly difficult to get to it (However, I also think that not many people know about this particular abandoned mine). There are no roads to this mine – only the remains of a mule trail, which is now very faint. So, think about the fact that EVERYTHING you see at this site was hauled in on foot by men or mules. That’s impressive considering the amount of rail and some of the heavy equipment at this mining operation. I love sites like this because they give such a great insight into how the miners lived in the past. Based on the artifacts at this site, for example, we know what the miners read, what they ate, where they washed their hands, where they slept at night, etc. It is not difficult at all to imagine what day-to-day life was like for the crew of miners that worked here. A few questions I had… I would be very curious to know what the other building next to the intact miner’s cabin that we explored was (the building that had tumbled down the wash). We found artifacts quite a way down that wash, but nothing that gave us an insight into what that particular building was. Given the other bedframe present at the site, it might have just been another place to sleep. Hard to imagine miners sharing a bed and there was just one bed in the cabin we explored! Also, I would be curious to know where the stamp mill was and how large it was. It seems that a fair amount of it may have been buried from the waste rock pile shifting. Lastly, I would love to know more about that caved adit across from the miner’s cabin. Was that the original adit at this site? How far back did it go? As I said at the introduction to this video, credit for locating this mine goes to my exploring buddy, Adit Addicts, whose YouTube channel can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCIXOU8aR7o50X6q2wQ0wbCQ All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

The Horton Mine: Encountering a Ghost in a Haunted, Abandoned Mine (Summer 2013)
 
03:49
I had a startling encounter with the supernatural while exploring the abandoned Horton Mine located near the massive Victorine Mine in Nevada. The Horton Mine dates back to the mid-1800s. I have been inside over a hundred abandoned mines, but this one was definitely the creepiest. As I ventured hesitantly down the tunnel, it felt more and more wrong. You'll see in the video the supernatural occurrence that caused me to ultimately turn around and head back out of the tunnel.
Cripple Creek (1), Colorado, United States.
 
03:44
Cripple Creek Colorado 2005. For many years Cripple Creek's high valley, at an elevation of 9,494 feet (2,894 m), was considered no more important than a cattle pasture. Many prospectors avoided the area after the Mount Pisgah hoax, a mini gold rush caused by salting (adding gold to worthless rock). On the 20th of October, 1890, Robert Miller "Bob" Womack discovered a rich ore and the last great Colorado gold rush began. Thousands of prospectors flocked to the region, and before long Winfield Scott Stratton located the famous Independence lode, one of the largest gold strikes in history. In three years, the population increased from five hundred to ten thousand by 1893. Although $500 million worth of gold ore was dug from Cripple Creek, Womack died penniless on 10 August 1909. In 1896 Cripple Creek suffered two disastrous fires. The first occurred on April 25 destroying half of the city including much of the business district. Four days later another fire destroyed much of the remaining half. The city was rebuilt in a period of a few months, most historic buildings today date back to 1896. By 1900, Cripple Creek and its sister city, Victor, were substantial mining communities. During the 1890s, many of the miners in the Cripple Creek area joined a miners' union, the Western Federation of Miners (WFM). A significant strike took place in 1894, marking one of the few times in history that a sitting governor called out the national guard to protect miners from anti-union violence by forces under the control of the mine owners. By 1903, the allegiance of the state government had shifted and Governor James Peabody sent the Colorado National Guard into Cripple Creek with the goal of destroying union power in the gold camps.[citation needed] The WFM strike of 1903 and the governor's response precipitated the Colorado Labor Wars, a struggle that took many lives. Through 2005, the Cripple Creek district produced about 23.5 million troy ounces (979 1/6 troy tons; 731 metric tons) of gold. The underground mines are mostly idle, except for a few small operations. There are significant underground deposits remaining which may become feasible to mine in the future. Large scale open pit mining and cyanide heap leach extraction of near-surface ore material, left behind by the old time miners as low grade, has taken place since 1994 east of Cripple Creek, near its sister city of Victor, Colorado. The current mining operation is conducted by Cripple Creek and Victor Gold Mining Company (CC&V). The mine operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Mine operations, maintenance, and processing departments work a rotating day/night schedule in 12-hour shifts. With many empty storefronts and picturesque homes, Cripple Creek once drew interest as a ghost town. At one point the population dropped to a few hundred, although Cripple Creek was never entirely deserted. In the 1970s and 1980s travelers on photo safari might find themselves in a beautiful decaying historic town. A few restaurants and bars catered to tourists who could pass weathered empty homes with lace curtains hanging in broken windows. Colorado voters allowed Cripple Creek to establish legalized gambling in 1991. Cripple Creek is currently more of a gambling and tourist town than a ghost town. Casinos now occupy many historic buildings. Casino gambling has been successful in bringing revenue and vitality back into the area. It also provides funding for the State Historical Fund, administered by the Colorado Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation. In 2012, Colorado casinos produced over $104 million in tax revenue for these programs https://youtu.be/FanuH0sO_W8 Cripple Creek Colorado 2005.
