Project #31 GHOST TOWN

This is the abandoned ghost town of Molson, WA. (USA). It made for a fantastic photo adventure!.  

You can go into all the buildings, the bank,  the lawyers office, the shingle mill, the mining company's shop, and a couple homesteads as well. 

I added a few photos so you can see it as well.....

The bank......

The printing press....

A homestead.....
What was probably the main (and only) street.....

A typical one room cabin homestead....


Inside the cabin....  I'm sure the historical society thought that adding the mannequins would make it somehow more realistic,but I personally thought it would have been better without them.....  


This sign made me laugh.....



Not the very first schoolhouse, but still an original structure from when the town was functional.  It now exists as the historical society's museum.

I hope you enjoyed coming along on this historical adventure,  a step back in time to the year 1901.

Ghost towns and distant ringing school bells,
