I find ghost towns quite fascinating with all the eerie mystery that surrounds them. Neosha was reduced to a ghost town in 1951 after a great flood dumped up to 16 inches of rain in a very short amount of time.
The once thriving small town fell victim to a torrential rain that dumped as much as 16 inches of rain in a very short amount of time. The flood was known as the “Great flood of 1951″! The title really lives up to its name. Pictured above is the old Neosha school-house.
I find ghost towns beautiful…nature taking over its territory slowly…post-apocalyptic art…beautiful overgrowth and reclamation of man-made structures…taken over by nature!
Erie reminders are everywhere of the destruction, then desertion of the small Kansas town. The eerie reminders have become beautiful pieces of art…a photographers dream!
Neosha is one of many towns that have become “ghost towns“. Beautiful shells of once humanized towns, reclaimed by nature!
