Explore a Creepy Old House in an Abandoned Colorado Town
Because of all of the mining that went on in Colorado back in the day, there are quite a few ghosts towns in our great state. A lot of these towns were abandoned because of contamination of the water and other resources as a result of the mines.
The Need to Leave
Not only were the towns abandoned by the residents, but many of their belongings were left behind as well. Granted, these situations were much less detrimental and scary than, say, the Chernobyl incident, but it was most definitely the smart thing for these residents to relocate for health and safety reasons.
The Lost Town of Keota, Colorado
One of Colorado's ghost towns that was abandoned is a small, fairly unknown town by the name of Keota. I find it fascinating and a little eery to see towns that were just completely abandoned, especially when former residents simply leave all of their belongings behind.
