This Spooky Small Town In Alabama Could Be Right Out Of A Horror Movie

Alabama is home to many small towns. While some of these towns have very few residents, others are true ghost towns because they’ve been completely abandoned. It’s no secret that small abandoned towns give off an eerie vibe. As a matter of fact, some are so eerie that they could seriously be the setting of a horror movie. One Alabama ghost town in particular that fits the bill is Old Cahawba.
