Explore An Old Oregon Ghost Town At Golden State Heritage Site
Oregon’s ghost towns are fascinating places that take us back in time. Long ago, people built their homes, churches, and schools in these towns, and were full of hope and anticipation for the future. While those folks eventually moved on to pursue other dreams, the abandoned buildings will tell their own stories, if you’re ready to listen.
You can visit the little ghost town of Golden at the Golden State Heritage Site in Josephine County, and it has a compelling history.
