The vision that comes to most people’s mind when talking about rural & small town America, is that of large families working on farms with big red barns and parades down Main Streets in small towns filled with mom & pop stores.
However, now many communities are closer to ghost towns and ruins. Only unlike the Pyramids & the Great Wall these icons of the peak of America’s agriculture society, as well as the people who lived when they were thriving, are quickly disappearing and will soon just be another part of Lost Americana.
