The Spooky (Almost) Ghost Town In West Virginia With Fewer Than 10 Residents

West Virginia is riddled with ghost towns that will either give you the creeps or fill you with intrigue. Perhaps the tiny (almost) ghost town of Thurmond does a little of both for most people. First settled in 1844 by W.D. Thurmond, a surveyor who eventually served in the Confederate Army, the town of Thurmond was incorporated in 1901.

At last count, the Town of Thurmond had five residents.
