A town often becomes a ghost because the economic activity that supported it has failed, or due to natural or human-caused disasters such as a flood, government action, uncontrolled lawlessness, or war. For example, most western ghost towns were once mining towns, built during the booms that began in California in 1849 and continued into the early twentieth century on the promise of profits to be realized from a region’s abundant mineral deposits. As mineral strikes slowed, prospectors and those providing them their goods and services such as merchants, saloon owners, bankers, and prostitutes left homes and businesses. Most left, sometimes so abruptly that towns were often left in a state of suspended animation, with displays still standing in shop windows, bottles and glasses on saloon tables, and the shelves of abandoned cabins lined with pieces of crockery. Calamity and natural disaster created Ghost Towns as well. Thousands fled the area and thousands upon thousands, at times died never able retrieve their hidden fortunes.
