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.

Everything you need to know about Calico on: Ghost Town of Calico page.

Greetings Roeffie
