Keith Morphew (Mason City, IA) Enjoy hearing about ghost towns and seeing pics. Actually got into the ghost towns of the Black Hills years ago when vacationing. Bought a book about them and visited the sites or ruins of a few. Great way to see way more of an area in locating them than a lot of people who don't want to get off the main road. Back gravel roads here we come!    04-26-2015

Linda Looker  We stumbled across a ghost town on our evening drive about. Found this site. So glad. A map by county would be helpful too. Thank you.  06-07-2015

Loren Miller    I am a fan of old Iowa History & enjoy the old stories. I am an Iowa trade token collector I love to get info on these tokens. Any one having these tokens can contact me & would be glad to give information on them.                    (12-12-2015)

Nancy Broadie - (Cedar Rapids, IA) - Think this will be something fun to explore this upcoming winter of 2015 and 2016.             10-23-2015

Ray Wetherell - (Sutherland, Iowa)   Excellent website. I'm the founder of the Forgotten Iowa Historical Society on Facebook. We make use of the wonderful material you provide ALL THE TIME. Thanks for the great project.  I think I included the wrong domain on my last message. Either way great website.   06-10-2015


Richard Swanson  -  Great web site. I grew up on a small farm southwest of Wellman. I think I have been to most of the Ghost towns in Washington county. Also some in Keokuk and Iowa counties. I remember the town of Nira with two stores, which I have not seen in years. Wish I had more time to explore at this 70 years of age.
