    3. Williams Ranch
    4. Whon
    5. Doole
    6. Salt Gap
    7. Calf Creek
    8. Morris Ranch
    9. Lukenbach
    10. Praha

    Wish us luck ! I pray we found some good things...... Maybe some ghosts too

    How did you end up doing? I have thought about the same thing myself, just never gotten around to it.

    I found trash and lots of it, but I did find a house way back in the woods that had caved in on itself. Plan on going back sometime soon not sure when though found another spot that is producing every day.

    Praha is not that far from San Antonio.Been there several times. Hackberry is a ghost town.There are a couple of old victorian houses there and a stone store building with iron shutters.It's also around the Praha area. Those towns are in the book by T.Lindsey Baker.Texas Escapes has more information also on these towns.

    I know where a real ghost town is. It may be be in Oklahoma but if it is , you can spit into Texas because is on the state line on U.S. Route 66. Texola is the name. I once went to a funeral there for my Great Aunt. I stood outside the church in the middle of Route 66 and could of laid down and took a nap. No traffic. I stood in the middle of Route 66 , smoking a cigarette with one foot in Texas , the other in Oklahoma. Look it up on the map.

    Most folks unaware that TEXAS has more ghost towns than any other state ? How/Why you say ? It all has to do with railroads remember steam engines had to have water every 7 or 8 miles. When they brought trains in many, many towns just picked up and moved to the nearest set of tracks. Check it out you'll see what I mean, good hunting.....smitty988
