Most People Have No Idea There’s An Underwater Ghost Town Hiding In Nevada

In Nevada, the “great flood” isn’t only a biblical reference. As it turns out, the man-made creation of the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead in the 1930s led to the intentional flooding of St. Thomas, a small Nevada town. St. Thomas has since been referred to as the sometimes-underwater ghost town. According to the National Park Service, it has appeared and disappeared several times over the years, depending upon Lake Mead’s water levels.
