You Can Buy This Beautiful Victorian Ghost Town In Connecticut

Not every ghost town is scary. There’s one in Middlesex County that is strikingly beautiful, despite having been abandoned. In fact, it was the backdrop for two movies, in addition to being featured in the music video for Billy Joel’s “The River of Dreams,” which was filmed just a few years before it was deserted. It’s been abandoned for twenty years now, but it’s still on the market!
