What is a "Ghost Town" ?
There are six classes of "Ghost Towns", but we are mainly concerned with the first four.
Scattered rubble or site where
nature has reclaimed the land
Roofless buildings or partially demolished buildings
Boarded up or abandoned buildings, no population
A community with many abandoned buildings and a small population of residents.
Historic community or town, functional, but much smaller than in its boom years.
A restored town, state park, or replica of an old town, community or fort.
If you have research information on a ghost town in Mississippi, or if you
are interested in adopting a county, please contact me.
