    Browntown Ghost Town NC

    Does anyone have any information on a Ghost Town by the name of Browntown? I found it in an old Forsyth County book. I know it was in or near Teaguetown. The book says, Down below the bend in the road is the location of Browntown. Anyone have any idea where this might be? Thanks!

    Re: Browntown Ghost Town NC

    The town was founded in 1791, it was incorporated by the legislature of 1842-1843. At one time 800 residents lived in or around the town's city limits. The town was equipped with six doctors during it's life. Browntown was a thriving community until the railroad passed them by converting it to a ghost town, gone but not forgotten.
    Ester Brown was the last resident of Browntown. She was a midwife and was present until 1895. The town was located at the crossroads of the Old Plank and Salisbury-Deep River Roads
    REMAINS: The old burial ground is still there along with the remains of the old hat store.
