    Default suggested aid to finding places

    : For those of you that do not already know about this site, the US Geological Survey maintains a web site for finding officially named sites throughout the country. This can be very useful for finding towns or other sites you may have heard of but do not know their location. Follow the link below to visit this site. It is called the Geographic Names Information System. Simply enter the name of the site and the state it may be in if you know. You'll retrieve a listing of all sites in that state with that name. Hope this helps you fellow ghosttowners.

    : Yes, excellent site. We have made this available to everyone since we started in march'98. I am surprised more people have not seen it. Go to http://www.ghosttowns.com/visiting.html and then click on the link that says "how to locate a ghost town" and it talks about and gives a link to the GNIS. From the front page you can just click on "learn how to ghost town" - Ghosttowns.com
