Katie Lawrence is a Southeast Texas native who graduated 18th in her high school class with a GPA of 4.25. She attended college in the Houston area and began writing for OnlyInYourState in 2015.
Today, Katie writes, edits, and performs several other tasks for OnlyInYourState and has never been more passionate about a job before. Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Arizona is home to over 200 ghost towns, many of which have lost nearly all evidence of having ever been populated. However, the tiny town of Gleeson – though only home to only about five people – is still alive, and reminders of its heyday have been impeccably preserved. While it might be a mere blip on the map near Tombstone, it’s also home to one of the oldest and longest-standing jails in the entire state, which definitely deserves a visit.
