Grand County Ghost Towns

The Moab area is dotted with numerous ghost towns – communities that came into existence due to mining, ranching, and transportation needs. The communities later depopulated due to changing economics, environment, and infrastructure. The Museum’s archives include a historic postcard that was delivered to the remote community of Miner’s Basin high in the La Sal Mountains in 1904 – join Museum staff to trace the postcard’s path through Grand County, while exploring the fascinating stories of several of the area’s ghost towns.
