Landmarks and History – Ghost Towns of Carver County

Carver County, MN

Carver County is located in what is now essentially the southwestern corner of the Twin Cities metro area. The Carver Country Historical Society has a very nice web page dedicated to its sesquicentennial. In it, there is a scrapbook page featuring the “ghost towns” in Carver County. There are a number of interesting photographs of these villages that once were, as well as some reasons cited for their disappearances. Even though they no longer exist as viable towns, it is nice to see them recognized as a piece of Minnesota history.
