Most People Don’t Know About Langville, An Urban Legend Town In Montana
Montana has quite a few ghost towns, each with its own unique spot carved out in our history. But did you know the Treasure State has a bizarre “urban legend” town – a place that allegedly vanished overnight? If you’ve never heard of Langville, allow us to introduce you to the folklore.
If you saw the remake of Ghostbusters in 2016, you may remember the reference to Langville.
The line is simply "The entire town of Langville, Montana goes missing." But for those who are in the know, it's quite a shout-out.
The story of Langville has become quite an Internet legend.
Some say that the online search for evidence of Langville began after the Ghostbusters movie was released. Others swear that the rumors have been around much longer.
Of course, no Google search will produce any photos of Langville, and you won't find any evidence of it in history books.
But legend has it that Langville was a real town, a small rural spot that mysteriously vanished in the early 2000s. In the process, all online discussions of it, and all evidence of its existence, also disappeared.
Obviously, it's clear that Langville never really existed... or did it? Thanks to the Mandela Effect, you'll find Montanans who swear it used to exist.
The Mandela Effect occurs when a large group of people believes an event occurred when it did not. After Ghostbusters was released, several Montanans noted the review to the town, referencing it as a real place, although that may have been ironically.
Have you ever heard the story of Langville?
If nothing else, it's a great topic to bring up at parties. You may even find someone who claims to remember it!
Langville might be fictional, but each of these
Montana ghost towns is very real.
