The Government Built This Secret City And Then Abandoned It In The Woods

Fort Ord in Monterey County, California was a former U.S. military base. It once housed soldiers, their families, and even German prisoners of war.

Just beyond its borders, however, there lies another city. One that is entirely more surreal than any other abandoned ghost town.

YouTube channel “Seeker Stories” filmed this bizarre and haunting community. The footage is otherworldly, and you can find it below.

This eerie community was built to be abandoned. It’s unnerving by design: the town is meant to represent every and any city, from a suburb in the American midwest, to an embattled town in the Middle East. Watch the footage below to see inside this incredible place:

It’s hard to imagine walking around this surreal place. Do you know of any other abandoned military training areas?
