Ghost Town Road Trip in Washington

February 15, 2021

How many ghost towns are in Washington?

Washington state is a state full of history, which almost always means it’ll also be full of spooky old memories in the forms of ghost towns and abandoned buildings. There are literally hundreds of ghost towns scattered throughout the evergreen state, and it’s definitely impossible to list them all here in this little box! Some more notable ghost towns of Washington state include Monte Cristo, Bodie, and Nighthawk.

What are some creepy, abandoned places in Washington?

Washington has no shortage of abandoned buildings, given that it has no shortage of ghost towns. Some more-famous (or should we say infamous?) now-derelict buildings in the evergreen state include crazy things like an old, abandoned schoolhouse in Govan, a nuclear power plant in Satsop, an abandoned hospital in Sedro-Woolley, and so, so, SO many more. Washington truly appears to be an urban explorer’s dream come true. Take a look at our picks for some of the most interesting abandoned buildings in Washington state! 

Are there any haunted places in Washington?

Tons, my friend, tons. Ghosts are said to wander the halls of hundreds of places, including (but not limited to) old theaters, hotels, saloons, and more.
