At first when I didn't know what they meant with ghosttown, I thought FREAKY!!.
But there is nothing freaky about these towns, they are all deserted mining towns like Calico.
Between 1881 and 1896 silver was mined over here en Calico became a prosperous town with over 2,500 inhabitants. In 1895 the price of silver dropped in a dramatic way and the mining of silver stopped. Many people left the town and it became a Ghost Town. Many years later people remembered the story of Calico and restored it bit by bit and sometimes even rebuild the town.
