The epic of Texas History is one that is full of countless stories, vanished landmarks, and characters that even the best of fiction cannot create. In regard to European settlement, there are areas in Texas with a history that pre-dates the arrival of the first English colonists in Roanoke, Virginia; and it is often hard for one to believe that, unlike American History, Texas History actually gets older as one moves further westward.

With-in this site are troves of Texas folklore and vanished landmarks, from all across the state! Each article included on this website has been academically cited, and better yet, found among the pages of archival material, out of print publications, and crispy newspapers. The histories included with-in this website are fantastic, but it is the stories that can be found here that really make this website stand-out!

I hope that you enjoy your visit to Lone Star Ghost Towns, and please feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions. Take care, and y'all make sure to come back!
