View Full Version : Some Info About Towns Is Very Wrong

01-22-2006, 11:14 PM
I am sad to say that MUCH of the information on this site, when it comes to Oregon, is dreadfully wrong.

I've lived here for nearly 15 years and have been to more than just a few places called, "ghost towns" on this site.

For example, Hoskins, Oregon is said to have a covered bridge...and it did...but that blew away in 1962 during the Columbus Day storm. Hoskins might be a very empty town but it sure ain't a ghost town...Neither is Kings Valley.

Why the bad info, folks?

In addition to information posted by state and town on this site, there is often information contained in postings to this forum which will update that information. For example, you will find a March, 2000 posting which calls into question the general post on Hoskins, OR. While updating may be difficult as to the specific site, the information in these individual forum postings is most helpful. I also expect those sites more often visited to contain more timely information. My own experience with the GT's I've visited, perhaps 70 to 80 on this site, is much better than your own. Perhaps that is because my trips have been to the more heavily visited by GTers, that is, the Southwest, NM, AZ, CO, UT, NV and CA. Old Judge

Ghosttowns.com is for the people and BY the people so submit corrections - if you dont then the info will continue to be wrong.


Corrections are posted as updates to the towns on the town pages themselves.
