Are there any ghost towns I can visit in Texas?

As you’ve learned above, the town of Key is a ghost town, but there are many others. East of El Paso, you’ll find Lobo which once had a thriving agricultural community. Due to the high cost of irrigation, farmers eventually left and the town is now filled with unoccupied houses and buildings. Medicine Mound is another abandoned town and all that remains is its general store, some houses, and a few other buildings. Find these and more in our Creepy Ghost Towns In Texas article.
