I found the one town in PA that doesn't have a Dollar General or any "we buy house" signs. It was a bit spooky but a neat weekend road trip

Look up the history of Centralia Pa to learn about this modern ghost town.

The question I ask myself, what does one do after buying the town?

Ray, have you been through Renovo or Emporium? Talk about stepping in time. Emporium is where I bought my first house. Sight unseen. Went out there with my buddy to visit the house at the time. Stopped into a pub for dinner and felt like the ladies were looking at us like ďdonít let them leave, we need the genes.Ē Haha what a town! --24.152.xxx.xx

The only abandoned building that wasn't bulldozed was the municipal building built in 1978. There are about six other buildings still standing in town where the last people live at. The population of the town is down to about 5

That underground coal fire is expected to burn for another 250 years. --24.101.xxx.xxx

Home of the eternal BBq Pit. Imagine if you could harness that heat to crack petro chemicals, or heat buildings with steam. --184.59.xxx.xx

Lots of folks like Ghost hunting tours. And yes if you could harness that fuel burning into HOT Springs PA you could have a day and evening business. --172.59.xxx.xxx

Visited it probably 20 years ago to walk around for an hour or so. Wasnít even much left then. Very sad to me, because I grew up in a town like that. Made me think of all the kids who grew up there, cruising the Main Street, going to Friday night football games, taking girls to the cemetery for a kiss after dark. And now itís all gone. --208.190.xx.xx

So a private investor bought the condemned town - what does one do with it?

I suppose it could be made into one large cemetery.

The other thing I was thinking about was Love Canal up in western NY. What ever happened there

What a waste! I am surprised there was not money in the Green New Deal to extinguish the massive coal fire. --73.141.xxx.xxx
