Ghost Towns of the Pacific Northwest and Cascadia
One thing the Pacific Northwest, (also known as Cascadia in certain circles,) has an excess of is Ghost Towns. Decades of exploration, gold strikes, construction projects, land speculation and homesteading have left abandoned names, mines, and towns across the Pacific Northwest and Cascadia. Some of these towns are still around and are populated, but many are a shadow of their former self. Most simply do not exist at all any longer as anything more then a wide spot along a road, or a clearing in the woods. The below list is by no extensive or complete. If you know of a specific town that is missing, please leave a comment below. If you have any information or recollections about a specific town, please leave it in the comments of that town.
