Rhode Island Has A Lost Town Most People Don’t Know About

Rhode Island has a lengthy and fascinating history, much of which has been well-preserved. But unlike the rest of New England, something it doesn’t have is a ghost town… at least, not anymore. Rumor has it that a colonial-era ghost town by the name of Hanton City once existed, and it served quite a purpose when it did.
