    : I live in Seattle. This is a new hobby but I've found some sort-of ghost towns in state. Depends on your definition.

    : I just found a book about old mines and I'm hoping it will help locate some old townsites.

    : Cheers Adam,

    : Hi, I just wanted to let you know that there are hundreds of ghost towns in Wash. State. Northeastern Wash. Is great for ghost towns. This is where the first mining took place. In 1886 the North Half of the Colville Indian Reservation was thrown open for mineral entry and hundreds of prospectors flooded in and stacked there claims within weeks.Watch for my new website coming on the WWW soon. I have been working on it for many months and have gathered information over the last several years. It will be on ghost towns of Northeastern Wash. which will include six Counties. Watch for it in the next couple of weeks, it will be called Boom Towns & Relic Hunters. Cheers, Jerry
