Grand County Ghost Towns Exploration

September 12, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MDT

Free

Step back in time and unravel the mysteries of Grand County’s forgotten towns with the Moab Museum.

The Moab area, once a hub of mining, ranching, and transport activities, is now peppered with ghost towns that stand as silent witnesses to a bygone era. These towns, now abandoned, are rich tapestries of history, ambition, and the ever-changing tides of economy and environment. At the heart of our exploration is a historic postcard from 1904, addressed to the secluded community of Miner’s Basin in the La Sal Mountains. Join the Museum staff in retracing the journey of this postcard, as we traverse Grand County and delve deep into the captivating tales of its ghost towns.
