Abandoned Ghost Town - Thurmond WV

posted by Scott Hammer - 

OK, so this may only be interesting to me and five of my friends, but I thought this was pretty cool because I have gone white watering rafting in this area of West Virginia on the New River for each of the last 10+ years and our guides always tell us about the abandoned ghost town of Thurmond, West Virginia with its five residents that used to be a booming place back in the day when the coal mining industry was thriving in the area. Or white water river trip takes us past a few of these former boom towns that have since been abandoned and now are just reminders of the past. Last year our guide took us way back off the river on an island that had a small creepy graveyard where very young children were buried that has been overtaken by nature and now just seems to be some random headstones in the middle of the woods.
