The Abandoned Town In Oklahoma That Most People Stay Far, Far Away From
Picher, Oklahoma. Once a thriving city of nearly 10,000 residents is now one of the most avoided areas in all of Oklahoma. A city that once had thousands of buildings has been reduced to a ghost town, most of the buildings torn down by the government after they evacuated and closed the place for good.
The contaminants in the air, the water and the earth, in addition to the grave dangers of cave-ins are enough to keep people out of Picher, Oklahoma. It’s easy to see why this is the one abandoned town in Oklahoma that most people stay far, far away from.
Do you know anyone who used to live in Picher? We’d love to hear in our comments!
