Feels abandoned, for sure. But curious about the one abode with a camera and satellite dish. The camera could be real or not but it's there...

Doesn't look like any one lives there any more! Interesting what people decided to leave behind!

Cisco Ghost Town

This town was used during times of the uranium mining boom for its railroad access. Last known there were homes with grass thatch roofs. A one room post office in use until approx. 2001. There are approximately 8 buildings in Cisco. Also used for filming of several movies including Vanishing Point, Thelma and Louise, and Pontiac Moon.
