From the beginning of time, people have told stories — regaling their friends and families with tales of adventure, hard times, interesting people, frightening experiences and everyday life. Sometimes these were truths, others were exaggerations, and occasionally, they were nothing more than tall tales.
American History is filled with folklore, Native American mythology, and real truths that make for wonderful campfire tales. In these stories, much like earlier European, Greek, and Roman tales, the accounts can often be only be guessed at, as to whether they are fact or fiction, but they continue to make the rounds of new generations.
As Legends of America travels across the country, we love to visit ghost towns, gathering history and taking photographs. From Bodie, California to Bloom, Kansas; Ruby, Arizona to Arena, North Dakota, we hope you enjoy a virtual tour through the ghost towns of the American West.
