There are places scattered throughout the nation that stand abandoned and forgotten; each site a relic of an age long since lost to time. These towns, cemeteries, roadside respites, and slowly decaying buildings serve as silent reminders of the eras of our nation's past that have helped shape the people we are today. As the years passed and time pressed on these sites became the focus of myth and legend. Today many of these locations carry with them stories of mystery and intrigue, the phantoms of the past forever connected to these ruins of an abandoned America. By exploring these sites we are not only reliving these past eras, but we are also remembering the people who made America what it is today.
