Visit These 8 Creepy Ghost Towns In Idaho At Your Own Risk

Mining towns are a huge part of Idaho’s history. Our state simply wouldn’t be the state it is today without the dozens of mining towns that cropped up during the 1800s. Several of these towns experienced booms as silver was discovered in the area, only for the riches to eventually dwindle and the town to become abandoned. These towns suffered a tragic fate but you can still visit many of them today. If you’re the type of person who likes to seek out the supernatural, you’ll definitely want to visit these eight creepy ghost towns. Who knows what you’ll come across!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
