Old Lost Mines, Ghost Towns & Graveyards

If you like stories about old lost gold mines, lost and buried treasures or old ghost towns, you've come to the right place. There are hundreds, or maybe even thousands of these kind of fables and tales about old mines and towns that sprung up out of nowhere. Places all around the world and almost since the beginning of time. Whether it's stories about the American wild west or all the way back to the time of King Solomons mines, there is either a story or some kind of fabled legend. And if the story involves maybe a few shadey characters or abit of murder or mystery, well that makes these stories all the more exciting.

Most old gold and silver mines were discovered by lonely prospectors or local indigenous people. Other mines where said to be shown in dreams and visions by the Gods or the spirits. Either way these old mines were somehow discovered. Over the centuries, some people found fame and fortune, others lost it all and countless more died trying.

The stories on this website here are mainly short versions. Each story is about 500 to maybe 800 words, has a Youtube video that is close to the story and there is a picture or two. Be sure to stop back from time to time to read up on these old towns and camps as stories are always being added.
