World's Most Scary Ghost Town

A Ghost Town is a town or community that at one time had a commercial or population center, and is either wholly abandoned or faded greatly from its peak, and now is just a shadow of its former self.

New Mexico has over 400 ghost towns and many more camps and other smaller historical locations. New Mexico's ghost towns are located in just about every are of the state of New Mexico. The most famous of the New Mexico ghost towns are the semi-ghost tourist locations like Shakespeare and steins. New Mexico also has many very desolate ghost town sites where there is little left. Unfortunately, New Mexico has one of the worst records in the preservation of ghost towns. Many states actively protect their ghost towns and keep vandalism to a minimum, but such is not the case New Mexico. For that reason and also due to New Mexico's harsh climate, the majority of New Mexico's ghost towns are nothing more than a few foundations and some occasional mining equipment. But, that doesn't stop the avid ghosttowner from enjoying what is left of New Mexico's ghost towns.
