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.

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

"Garnet Ghost Town" An Abandoned Montana Mining Town, USA.
 
03:26
"Garnet Ghost Town" Abandoned Montana Mining Town, USA by American Ghost Towns. Garnet is a ghost town in Granite County, Montana, United States. Located on the dirt Garnet Range Road, it is an abandoned mining town that dates from the 1860s. In First Chance Gulch in western Montana, the town is located 11 miles up the Garnet Range Road, in mountains and forest. The town is at about 6,000 feet (1,800 m) elevation. Garnet was originally named Mitchell in 1895 and had ten buildings. The main part of the town was built on the Garnet Lode. Later changing its name to Garnet, it was a rich gold mining area. In 1898, as many as 1,000 people lived here; it was abandoned 20 years later when the gold ran out. A fire in 1912 destroyed half the town, which was never rebuilt. Supplies needed in Garnet were generally obtained from nearby Bearmouth. Despite this, Garnet is one of the state's best preserved with 16,000 visitors annually. The annual celebration the third Saturday of each year is Garnet Day. Garnet's oldest living member, Mary Jane Adams Morin, came to visit every year. The nearest city is Missoula, about 20 miles (32 km) to the west. The closest city to the east is Butte, about 100 miles (160 km) away. Garnet has the Wells hotels, Kelly Saloon, Daveys Store and many outer buildings, preserved and intact. During the 1890s, it had close to thirteen saloons (bars), as well as food stores, a barber shop, mercantile store, and three hotels. The hotels were started for passersby, or people coming to pick up gold. They typically ranged from 1-3 dollars, and the poor miners who could not afford that price could sleep in the attic without any windows for a quarter. It is suspected that Garnet even had a brothel, but prices and the exact whereabouts are uncertain. Garnet was famous for its saloons; at its peak, the saloons were one of the hottest spots in Garnet. For a better Experience turn on Subtitles and translations.

The World's Largest Abandoned City - Ordos
 
04:36
Ordos The World’s Largest Abandoned City The development of the city of Ordos is a unique tale. Ordos is a city designed from scratch and built within 10 years. This city came to fruition after private mining companies were given the rights to dig into deposits in the late 90’s and 2000’s. This generated a lot of tax revenue making Ordos the 2nd highest income per capita city in China. Ordos is a city located in Inner Mongolia that has been constantly been burdened with water shortage issues. Instead of trying to revamp the current infrastructure the Chinese government decided to rebuild the city from scratch which is called “New Ordos” just 16 miles or 25 km kilometers away from the existing city now called “Old Ordos”. The people of Old Ordos refer to New Ordos as the Kangbashi district of Ordos, these new and old labels are basically not supported by anyone locally. Two villages built around the Wulan Mulan River were demolished and construction started in 2005. 161 billion dollars in infrastructure was invested to build the Kangbashi District over the first 5 years. Regardless if anyone lives in this new city, this is a major plus to the government of China as it increases China’s GDP. The government gave kickbacks to developers who helped boost GDP so building anything anywhere is promoted. The old city of Ordos or Dongsheng is home to over ½ a million people, it was expected that many of them would move to the new city as it became completed. As explained by many locals, a working couple only makes $800 a month combined of which ⅓ is taken for rent. The new apartments in New Ordos sell for 70 - 100 thousand dollars making it virtually impossible for locals to live there. Sales were slow at first but eventually investors snapped up many of the units in the new city. This has left New Ordos with a ton of infrastructure and no residents. The city was originally designed to hold 1 million people but was scaled down during construction to 500,000 then to 300,000 after coal prices crashed. The city features a 5 story shopping mall, impressive monuments and statues, art and city museum, the Ordos Dongsheng Stadium that seats 35,000 people, opera house, a brand new airport and a modern designed mosque. The city streets are lined with skyscraper after skyscraper that are almost completely empty. A toy store is one of the only stores in the massive 5 story mall, the man who runs the store says he sells something every few days and if the government doesn’t step in soon to fix it, he may have to move back to Dongsheng. It is estimated only 2 % of the buildings were ever filled the rest remain abandoned. Outside the mall an elaborate water show is put on every night with only a few people found to be watching it. A water show this size in a normal city would draw thousands of viewers daily. The city has everything it needs to be a great thriving new city like extra wide roads with bike lanes like what is found in Taipei, modern amenities and infrastructure but simply no people. The initial wave of 30,000 people that moved to New Ordos all lived in a 4 to 5 block radius just north of central park. A few years later that grew to 60,000 and now 12 years after the start of construction there are around 150,000 residents in a city that was originally designed for 1 million. The city has been doing many things to attract people to live there like moving the best schools from Dongsheng to Kangbashi. While some areas of Kangbashi aren’t a ghost town at all today, many still are. One abandoned project is the Ordos 100 Project, which is a project that was to have 100 different extreme luxury villas designed. Instead of the government doing it themselves they invited 100 different architects from around the world to each design a luxury villas to be placed on the map. Land sections were given out with the utmost creative freedom except the design was not to look like traditional Mongolian designs such as Yurts. Each architect designed their villa and construction started. Within the Ordos 100 Project site multiple half finished villas can be found. While many lay half finished some have progress going forward.

Why Is This ABANDONED Town In The Middle Of Nowhere?
 
11:26
We found this mysterious ghost town in the middle of nowhere and could not find much information on the place. I do know it must have been an old mining town, so there are probably some good mine tunnels to go back and explore as soon as the snow melts. I also found that the main commodity was gold, placer gold deposits. I also want to say thank you to everyone who takes the time to like this video and comment. I READ EVERY comment, but many times I may not have the time to reply. I want you to know that I do read it and will make every effort to reply. 🙂 #Abandoned #Exploring #ExploreWithUs

GHOST TOWN Helena California Abandoned 1850's Town
 
14:28
Helena California is a completely abandoned ghost town with many buildings remaining. The town started in the 1850's and lasted through the 1930's, with the post office lasting through the 1980's. In the 1970's, one of the abandoned buildings was completely restored and used as a post office. I am not sure when it closed, but today the entire town is completely abandoned and frozen in time. At one time it was literally the end of the road. This is where the highway ended and was end of the line. The demise came when the highway was rerouted less than a quarter of a mile away. Today only the abandoned homes and buildings remain. If you visit this old ghost town, you can see many abandoned buildings with original wallpaper, architecture, and even an old feeding stables. The town reminded me a lot of the "Little House On The Prairie" TV show. Sadly the vandals have destroyed many of the original buildings. FOLLOW US: Get the latest updates and information.

"Granite Ghost Town" An  ABANDONED Silver Mining Town in Montana, USA.
 
03:25
"Granite Ghost Town" An ABANDONED Silver Mining Town in Montana, USA by American Ghost Towns. Granite is a ghost town in Granite County, Montana, United States, three miles east of the town of Philipsburg. Granite thrived as a silver mining town in the 1890s and is now completely deserted.The state of Montana maintains the mine superintendent's house and the ruins of the union hall as Granite Ghost Town State Park. In 1872, Eli Holland found a small quantity of high quality ruby silver in the area. A shallow shaft was dug, but later abandoned until 1877, when Charles McLure discovered some silver ore in the shaft. He later traveled to St. Louis to obtain the capital necessary to begin development of the mine. Granite eventually grew to a town with more than 3,000 inhabitants. For the time period, there were many modern amenities, such as the large Miners Union Hall, a library, 18 saloons, brothels, a hospital and school as well as churches. The Sherman Silver Purchase Act was repealed in 1893, drastically lowering the price of silver, and many residents left Granite, leaving only 140 residents a year later. Granite is currently entirely uninhabited. For a better Experience turn on Subtitles and translations.

Ghost Towns Abandoned For STRANGE Reasons!

Love Canal, USA In the late 19th century, Love Canal was proposed as a planned community, a "utopian metropolis". But the developer only got as far as digging a large pit before giving up, due to the lack of people who actually wanted to live there. In 1920, Niagara Falls bought the pit and used it as a chemical dump. Far from what the developer was picturing when he came up with the name “Love Canal”. The US army disposed of waste from experiments in Love Canal's pit. Hooker Chemical acquired the property in 1947 and continued chemical disposal. By the 1950s, it was filled with 21,000 tons of waste. Hooker Chemical covered it with clay and soil and declared it sealed. They sold it back to the city of Niagara Falls, which built a neighborhood on top. Residents noticed strange smells and odd illnesses, as well as a shockingly high rate of miscarriages and birth defects. It wasn't until 1978 that the extent of the area's toxicity was revealed when an investigation by the local newspaper led to federal attention. Tests showed inhabitants of Love Canal had chromosomal damage caused by environmental pollution. Over a thousand families were relocated, and the Superfund program was born. 9. Bento Rodrigues, Brazil Bento Rodrigues was a town located near an iron ore mine. The mine dumped its waste into a nearby lake but a dam protected the village from the poisonous water. That is, until 2015, when a containment wall collapsed. 35 million liters (9.2 million gallons) of toxic clay poured out in a 32-foot-tall wave of mud. It crushed Bento Rodrigues and turned the entire town red. Two United Nations environmental experts inspected the mud and discovered high levels of heavy metals and other poisonous chemicals. The mud contaminated the town’s water, which contained lead levels that were 10 to 20 times above Brazil’s legal limit. The owners of the mine had to relocate the people who lived in Bento Rodrigues. It will take at least 10 to 50 years for the area’s environment to recover. 8. New Idria, USA Founded in 1854, New Idria sat near the largest and one of the most productive mercury mines in the United States. In fact, the value of the mine was so high that it was guarded by armed soldiers. Mining there continued until 1971, when the company that owned the mine closed. The town of New Idria was also abandoned. Beneath the surface, 30 miles of underground tunnels leaked water full of mercury. It contaminated the local river and turned it bright orange. Not just mercury either. Aluminum, iron, and nickel, making it as corrosive as battery acid. From the local river, the polluted water contaminated nearby streams and harmed local wildlife. Bacteria turns mercury into methylmercury, one of the nation’s most serious hazardous waste problems. Methylmercury contaminates fish. People who eat the poisoned fish can experience headaches, tingling, and tremors. Children are especially affected: they can develop brain and nervous system damage. In 2011, 157 years after the founding of the town and 40 years after the mine closed, the EPA finally began a program to clean up the area.

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

"Berlin Ghost Town" An Historic Abandoned Mining Town in Nevada, USA.
 
03:38
"Berlin Ghost Town" An Historic Abandoned Mining Town in Nevada, USA by American Ghost Towns. The Berlin Historic District encompasses the ghost town of Berlin in Nye County, Nevada. The town was established in 1897 as part of the Union Mining District after the opening of the Berlin Mine the previous year. The name is a transfer from Berlin, in Germany, the native land of a share of the local prospectors. The town never prospered to the same extent as other boom towns like Tonopah and Goldfield, and declined following the Panic of 1907. The town was largely abandoned by 1911. The site was acquired by the state of Nevada as part of Berlin–Ichthyosaur State Park in 1970. The town was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.

ABANDONED GHOST TOWN In PERFECT CONDITION Clock Was STILL TICKING
 
13:03
Finding a ghost town in perfect condition is rare even in Nevada. The real kicker was the clock that was still ticking away, although off by a few hours, it was an interseting thing to see. I discovered this strange place after searching public land maps. I spend a lot of time scouring public land maps to find the best hidden locations rarely visited. When I spotted this place, I knew I had to check it out. I visited this location twice. When I arrived the first time, I was certain something was wrong. There was no way this was abandoned on public land, so I left. I figured it was Private Property, and we try to never enter private property. I went home and cross referenced the Public Land Maps with MyLandMatters.org and County records, and sure enough, this was public BLM land. It was apparent that only 3 or 4 people know this place exists, and they seem to keep the place a secret. I can't say I blame them, and I will not share this location with anyone. Inside the building there is a log book of those who have visited this cabin, and the interesting thing is, there are only 4 entries dating back to the 1970's, and three of those entries were by the same person. This suggests only a very select few know this place exists. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT ... Please turn off ad blocker and support us! We can only make more videos with revenue generated through our ads.

"Adamsville GHOST TOWN"  Abandoned Town, Pinal County, in Arizona, USA.
 
03:59
"Adamsville GHOST TOWN" Abandoned Town, Pinal County, in Arizona, USA by American Ghost Towns. Adamsville was a populated place in Pinal County, Arizona. Once a thriving farm town, it became a ghost town by the 1920s. Adamsville is located at an elevation is 1,450 feet, on the south bank of the Gila River, west of Florence, Arizona. Adamsville was one of the first two towns formed in Pinal County, Arizona. It was named for its original settler in 1866, Charles S. Adams. When a post office was established there in 1871, it was named Sanford, (for a Captain George B. Sanford of the First U.S. Cavalry), by a political enemy of Mr. Adams, Richard McCormick. Local residents continued to use the original name, causing confusion which existed until 1876, when the post office was discontinued. The entire settlement was gone by 1920.

"Gleeson Ghost Town" Abandoned Arizona Mining Town, USA by American Ghost Towns. Gleeson is a populated place situated in southeastern Cochise County, Arizona.[3] It has an estimated elevation of 4,924 feet (1,501 m) above sea level. The town was first settled as Turquoise[4] in the 1870s in what was then the Arizona Territory, then later re-established as Gleeson in 1900. Though several families still live on the site, Gleeson is, by all measures, a ghost town, with the only commercial venture appearing to be a rattlesnake products store. Visitors can find the ruins of a hospital, a saloon, a cemetery, a jail, the foundation of the village school and evidence of the extensive mining in the surrounding hills near town. The Gleeson cemetery is west of the town on the road to Tombstone. For a better Experience turn on Subtitles and translations.

The Abandoned Mines and Buildings in the Ghost Town of Atolia, CA
 
05:17
Yesterday we found ourselves wandering around the ghost town of Atolia checking out the many abandoned mine shafts and old buildings that are there. In its heyday, Atolia had a population of 2000 people and had grocery stores, hotels, saloons, and other businesses. A rail line was built to service the town, too. Now all of that is gone. Vanished. Dried up. We wandered the dusty streets of Atolia, looked down many of the vertical mine shafts, and explored many of the remaining buildings. What once was a busy, bustling place full of excitement is now marked by a sense of loneliness and sad silence that is often broken by the sound of the hot, dry, desert wind blowing through what once was Atolia.

An empty town in California complete with a school, church, firehouse, stores, even a morgue! Traveling through California I stopped off at the incredible Redwoods! So amazing to see these giants in person. From there I went on to explore Bodie, an incredibly preserved town in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Bodie was a thriving mining town way back in the 1800's but as time went on it became less and less populated until the 1940's when it was all but abandoned. It was eventually taken over by the state, protected and preserved. Such a cool experience to walk around this place. What a time warp!

Driving between Las Vegas and Reno Nevada on Hwy 95, you come across the strange little semi - abandoned town of Goldfield. I often wonder what people do for a living here because really, there is pretty much nothing around for miles. This spooky town is very close to the infamous and kinda creepy Area 51. Abandoned cars in the streets and yards, abandoned homes, storage containers out in the open, deserted buildings, closed businesses all boarded up...it just seems so weird when you come from a large city environment!

Finding Something Unexpected in an Abandoned Copper Mine
 
14:48
What an unexpected discovery! Paul and I never imagined finding what we found deep in this abandoned copper mine in Arizona. The Warren-Bisbee Mine's obscure entrance was basically a rabbit hole and didn't look too promising. However, once we gained entry by sliding in on our backs, the tunnels opened up and were surprisingly extensive. One tunnel led us deep into the mine to an inner area where we found -- something. Something impressive. Something rare that I've only seen a few times in abandoned mines over the last seven years or so. And it's all here in this video. Enjoy! Don't forget: New videos are released at midnight (Pacific Time) on the 1st, 10th, and 20th of each month. View and use the information in my videos at your own risk. All abandoned mines (especially the ones in my videos) are very dangerous and should not be entered under any circumstances.

Ghost Towns in Saskatchewan, Canada - Abandoned Village, Town or City

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.

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.

Burning Ghost Town In Centralia, Pennsylvania
 
02:53
If you thought the horror movie Silent Hill was fiction, you should visit Centralia, Pennsylvania. This abandoned ghost town has had a fire burning underground for over 50 years! Due to constant spontaneous combustion and oxidation, this mysterious old coal mine is completely out of control! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "Most SHOCKING Biological Weapons Ever!" video here: https://youtu.be/W0Yli9y7YAk Watch our "Top 5 Most Mysterious and Powerful Secret Societies" video here: https://youtu.be/0Lu4Uvc5EhA Watch our "DEADLIEST Ship Disaster In History!" video here: https://youtu.be/8cNBVZMoalc Town literally burning for more than 50 years! There is a small town in Pennsylvania that has been burning since 1962. That’s over 50 years! What? How is that even possible? So the issue is that Centralia, Pennsylvania is on top of some of the biggest coal deposits in the world. In the 1800s miners blasted tunnels underground and then abandoned them about 100 years later. No one really knows what exactly caused the fire but the strongest theory is that some burning trash from a landfill accidentally lit the coal near an old entrance to the mine. Yeah this isn’t fog, it’s smoke. Since sometimes coal deposits are under a lot of pressure, it can even ignite without a flame. The oxygen from the empty tunnels created the perfect conditions for the fire to spread. The flames started going deeper and deeper into the surrounding area as more coal burned, and the tunnels continue to take oxygen down from the surface. It is now in a vicious, fiery cycle that is now about 300 feet deep. Coal burns slow and steady and can take ages to burn out. As long as there is enough heat, fuel, and oxygen to keep it going, there’s nothing you can do. They actually tried to put it out by drilling holes into the mine and pouring wet sand down to block off the air supply but it didn’t work. It might not seem like such a big deal since the fire is underground but it really is. The 1000 residents probably didn’t think that is was a big deal either until sulfurous fumes and carbon monoxide almost suffocated everyone in their home. The underground fire fractured the ground making sink holes all over the place. A 12-year-old almost fell in one in 1981. The roads are also affected and have smoke coming out of them! The last time they tried to put it out was in the 1980’s but since then everyone’s just given up. Today about 12 people live in Centralia and it’s a very popular destination for graffiti artists. Check out this artwork all over the road. It also draws UFO seekers... The fire covers 6 square miles and spreads 75 feet every year. While this might seem like a freak accident, these kind of fires are actually pretty common. There are mine fires burning in Wyoming, Australia, Germany, and many other parts of the world. India and China have the most serious problems with hundreds of abandoned mines all over the country. Coal mine fires can burn for centuries and it is estimated that the Central fire could burn for another 250 years!

Abandoned City. The Power Is Still ON. Adventure #26
 
28:14
This was one of the funnest adventures I have ever been on. The city of Kitsault was built in 1979 to house the workers and families of the near by Molybdenum mine. However in 1982 the price of molybdenum plummeted and the city was abandoned in 1983. It has then been bought and is preserved by a small team of caretaker but has mostly sat vacant from the day the last resident left. The city was built to house 1200 residents and offered restaurants, a pool, curling rink, movie theatre, bar, bank, mall, rec hall, school and all of the essentials for a community. I could spend days exploring this unique town but I was pretty limited in time due to the extensive trip just to get to this city. All in all it was an incredible adventure.
