There are places in America that were once thriving areas filled with a constant flow of people and excitement. Those who were looking for work, adventure, or a better future were drawn to towns that lured them in with the promise of striking gold and untold riches.

Eventually these places turned into a shell of their former selves and all that remains today are empty buildings filled with dusty relics of the past.
