A ghost town is an abandoned village, town, or city, usually one that contains substantial visible remains. However some ghost towns here in Louisiana are just a dot on a map or marker on a highway. T. Lindsey Baker, author of Ghost Towns of Texas, defines a ghost town as “a town for which the reason for being no longer exists. Here in Louisiana we have lots of towns that no longer exists due to Lumber mills closing and moving to another location, economic activity shifting elsewhere, railroads and roads bypassing or no longer accessing the town and disasters. Cotton and Sugar Plantations often established a General Store for their workers and a Post Office. Over the years these small towns were abandoned. Some Louisiana Ghost towns are even under water. This website will feature these forgotten Louisiana place names.
