The Creepiest Ghost Town In Northern California Is The Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of

Tucked in the misty redwood forests of Humboldt County is an eerie and unsettling abandoned town. The forests have begun to take over, and have slowly eradicated what once was the lively town of Falk. It was built around the Falk lumber mill in 1884 and the town thrived until the great depression forced the lumber mill to close down in 1937. Nature now grows where there once were houses, and walking through these spooky woods will have you checking over your shoulder with every step.

These spooky videos will leave you feeling unsettled when you learn more about the past of Falk and the people who lived here.
