And Another Town That Dissappeared

Here is a town that exsisted from the 1890’s until the last remnants disappeared in the late 1940’s or early 1950’s. The population reached a high of between 200 & 300. By the 1910’s there were already 3 general merchandise stores, 1 drug store, 1 grocery, a blacksmith shop, and a cotton gin.

This first image is the North Half of Section 18 from the 1890’s General Land Office (GLO) Township Plat showing the location of the post office (PO):

This image is from a 1930’s map showing a representation of the town at that time:

Here is a more current USGS Topo Map of the area:

This image is from a 1940’s vintage aerial. You can still see traces of the town's streets and a few of the remaining structures at this time:

As said before, there are hundreds of these type sites in the surrounding 4 state area. You have to do the research and then the scouting & locating the landowners to get permission. Good Luck!
