Most People Have Long Forgotten About This Vacant Ghost Town In Rural Wyoming

Wyoming’s history is filled with stories from the Oregon Trail and Bozeman Trail as Americans made their way across the country seeking their fortune and land. Along the way, many little towns popped up and prospered for a few years before being abandoned when the mines dried up, or conditions got too hostile. One such town is South Pass City, and today it lies abandoned at the foot of the Windy River Range.
