Ontario's Ghost Town Heritage features the most interesting or "ghostly" destinations from Ron Brown's earlier volumes, all with updated information and images, along with newly "discovered" ghost towns. In all, it includes 80 accessible locations throughout Ontario.
As international travel becomes more difficult, there is a renewed interest in exploring our own backyard. Ontario historian Ron Brown visits vestiges of once-thriving towns and villages. Some still maintain small resident populations, while others exist only as abandoned buildings and foundation ruins. All have in common that they are "ghosts" of their former greatness and that their images evoke their lost legacies.
