Overview

The best of Ontario's ghost towns by the writer whose ghost-town books have sold over 150,000 copies.

"Ron Brown... must know more about Ontario's towns, past and present, than anyone else."
- Community Voices

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.

Sketch maps by the author guide the reader within each geographic region.
