Ghosttowns.com is supposed to be a site that is for and made by its users - to that end, the most current info posted on each town is the most current info that has been submitted to us whether from a book or from a users actual visit. The more people who submit updates/corrections and pictures, the more accurate the site will be. Obviously the towns with "current" looking color photographs will be more accurate then the ones with no photographs, and the ones with "update" in the comments section are more current. In the case of visiting the towns you mention we hope you will be submitting updates and pictures for the greater good of all the users of ghosttowns.com. As a side note, the conditions at ghost towns change daily. Entire towns can and do disappear overnight. Many of the towns with color pictures and recent visits and updates by ghosttowns.com users are not even there anymore. Unfortunately, it would probably not be a good idea to expect to see exactly what is written up about any particular town, on this website or in any book no matter how recent. But the more pictures everyone submits the better historical record we will have for when things do disappear.
