HOW TO GET TO THE GHOST TOWNS AND MINES ON OUR WEBSITE



RIPLEY & CAT'S PHILOSOPHY ON GIVING DIRECTIONS TO GHOST TOWNS:
You must EARN the right to visit America's last surviving ghost towns and historical sites. You must use your own wit and resources to earn that right.

All of the ghost towns, mines and historic sites within our webpage we found using maps and books, we were not given directions by anyone. And if we can find these sites then so can you!
