Ghost Towns

Like most of West Virginia, Braxton County has had its fair share of boom and bust. Small communities will often pop up around industry and train stations. Then industry shifts, or the rails become obsolete and the towns dry up. Click below for details and locations of Braxton County ghost towns.

Keep in mind, though areas or buildings may appear abandoned, land and buildings will likely still have owners and property may be private, so we do not recommend parking or walking far from the main roads. We certainly do not recommend entering into any buildings.

One ghost town has been removed from this page due to visitors treating the properties with disrespect and trespassing. Please do not spoil a good thing. Thank you.
