Two Swiss individuals, Daniel Ter-Nedden and Carola Schibli, have established this lively and informative tribute to those places that form the heart of much folklore and legend within the American West: the ghost town. The site contains over 1300 photographs from 174 ghost towns across the West, with the majority of them located in Nevada, Utah, New Mexico, California, and Arizona. Each ghost town entry is complemented with photography, short captions, and a brief history of each place. To encourage browsing of different states, a clickable map allows users to search different geographical areas for individual ghost towns. Visitors to the site can sign the guestbook, send a virtual ghost town postcard, and even purchase high-quality prints of different photographs featured on the site. Visitors will also find the page of additional ghost town links helpful, along with a brief explanation of how these two Swiss residents became involved in "ghost towning."
