Did you know there is a ghost town in the Adirondack Mountains that was once a thriving mining town but was abandoned...not once, but twice?

The town of Tahawus was founded in the 1920s after iron ore was found. Unfortunately, like a lot of mining towns, it didn't have huge success and it was abandoned. Then years later it was found that the town sat on a huge deposit of ore needed to make titanium. So, they moved the town and opened a mining operation again. It also failed years later.

Tahawus is unique because it was moved and abandoned twice, but it also has a connection to President Teddy Roosevelt. Check out the amazing pictures of this abandoned mining town that you can visit right here in Upstate New York.
