The Remnants Of This Abandoned Town In Nevada Are Incredibly Eerie

Just about anywhere you go in Nevada there’s an abandoned town worth exploring: businesses, homes, shells of old cars. While most of these aging relics are captivating reminders of Nevada‚Äôs earliest years, one abandoned town in Nevada is beyond incredibly eerie.

Nicknamed the “Survival Town,” no one ever lived there. It’s comprised of houses once populated by mannequins and stocked with packaged goods. This staged town was the target of a nuclear test in 1955. Code-named Apple II, the test was part of Operation Teapot, and took place at Yucca Flats on the Nevada Proving Grounds (now the Nevada National Security Site).

As you can see from the above video, not many houses made it through the blast. We’ll take a closer look at two of the houses that survived, but first a tiny bit of history.
