Hi, I am looking for ghost towns in Oregon or around Durango CO that are like Bodie or Bannack. Lots of buildings. I have been to Anamis Forks in CO. Are there any others in that area?
Thanks

Whitney in Baker County, Oregon is a good attraction and just right of the highway. Also Garnet in Grant County. Garnet is a semi - ghost with some residents and many historic buildings.

Jacksonville is a great place to visit. The best preserved mining town of its age I have ever seen. I don't think you could call it a ghost town though. In fact, Jacksonville is turning into a retiree and tourist mecca.
