25 Examples of Eerily Abandoned Buildings & Ghost Towns

A ghost town is an abandoned town or city. A town often becomes a ghost town because the economic activity that supported it has failed, or due to natural or human-caused disasters such as floods, government actions, uncontrolled lawlessness, war, or nuclear disasters.

There’s something really un-nerving and spooky when buildings and even whole towns are left abandoned, what happened to the inhabitants ? Why is it left this way? Luckily it also makes for some great photography so today’s post is to take a look at 25 great examples …
