Long before the days of now, when hungry explorers leapt off ships and started their lives in this new land, there were small colonial towns of Revolutionaries paving their way into American culture as we now know it. Homes were built with wood and brick, you didn’t travel too far… or if you did, you risked never coming back. Along the coast, small colonial villages thrived as both ports and early cities of the Revolution. Yet war was always on the doorstep, leaving many fleeing these small villages they’d so diligently carved a life in.

Brunswick Town is such a fascinating place and this time of year is perfect to visit. Have you been here before?

While Brunswick Town is not so much eerie but more beautiful and silent, there’s some other ghost towns that aren’t so quaint.
