Traveling back from a great dinner from the Walpack Inn in Sussex Nj I looked out my window and we were passing this ghost town. We made a right into the town and passed all of these old interesting buildings, a church, post office, school house. Which made me wonder why would all of these people just up and leave a town one day? Weird outbreak or something?
When I go and google the words abandoned town in Sussex County, I find out that it was due to government domain. The town was called Walpack Center, the government wanted to flood the whole area to make the Tocks Island Dam along the Delaware River back in the 1960s.
