The Tumco ghost town — 21 Comments

  1. Very interesting history lesson. We modern day humans sure have gotten soft! I can’t imagine surviving in all that dry, dirty heat! Not to mention going deep into those mines!

    Also very interesting that they still mine for gold!

  2. Wow. These types of history really fascinate me, not to mention the intrigue of the old west. It’s pretty cool that you get to experience that first hand.

    I had thought more of the buildings would have been made of wood, but I imagine there weren’t a lot of trees around there, huh? So to be frugal they would have had to use what was available, but somehow I just never thought of hospitals in the 1800’s.

    Thanks so much for sharing this!

  3. What a fascinating place. Love the pictures. Michigan has many such ghost towns. Most in the Upper Peninsula that were old mining towns or having to do with mining. One is now a state park and we have visited often. It is interesting to see how the people lived when those towns were in their heyday.
