The small village of Johnsonville in Connecticut has a fascinating history. The 62-acre town was once a large community filled with twine mills. It was then purchased by an eccentric businessman who turned it into a tourist attraction. When those plans failed, it was abandoned and fell into disrepair. A few years ago, the village was sold to a Filipino church. Today, Johnsonville is a ghost town in Connecticut that’s waiting for its next life.
