The Desolate Northern California Ghost Town That’s Being Swallowed Whole By A Marsh

The ghost town of Drawbridge has sat vacant since 1979 but now it looks like it’s disappearing forever. Just a handful of dilapidated buildings remain to remind us that this town was once home to actual people—workers, hunters, children, families. Located at the southern tip of the San Francisco Bay, this ghost town is slowly disappearing. It’s sinking, actually. Literally. The marsh is slowly rising and taking over the remnants of long abandoned buildings. The story of this town is utterly fascinating and it’s something that everybody should know about—before it’s too late.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
