New England is home to abandoned towns and forgotten main streets that once bustled with life and commerce. From villages sunk underwater to cities undone by the rise and fall of mill life, madness or just plain bad luck, these ghost towns offer a unique look into the rich history of the past. Get a glimpse into what early life was really like through historical accounts of abandoned villages. Discover the history behind the ruins of towns like Connecticut’s religious community Gay City, the former New Hampshire resort town of Unity Springs and Massachusetts’s famed Dogtown—before nature reclaims them entirely. Join local author Renee Mallett as she uncovers the heydays of some of New England’s most fascinating lost towns.
