Most People Have Long Forgotten About This Vacant Ghost Town In Rural New York

New York doesn’t quite have the typical ghost towns that you’ll find out in the Old West, where there are well-kept abandoned structures and movie-like rolling balls of tumbleweed. With that said, you can still find some truly incredible pieces of history that have been left behind in some of the Empire State’s forgotten towns. Taking you all the way up to Essex County, it’s time to explore the lost town of Tahawus.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
