Drone Footage Captured At This Abandoned Town in West Virginia Is Truly Grim

Ghost towns are like echoes from the past. Without people, a town seems to lose its purpose somehow. Technically, this is not entirely true for Thurmond, as there are still five people living there, somewhere. But from the bird’s eye view, the story of this little empty little town seems quite grim.

Thurmond still receives many visitors a year, and the station has been turned into a museum of sorts, telling a story of a town that was once full of life but is now haunted by memories.
