there are much better ways to spend time than looking for what is incorrectly described as a 'ghost town' and more accurately could be termed a couple decrepit wood buildings in an uninteresting setting

This location is off the beaten trail. It consists of an old mill with weeds all grown up in front of it. Interesting but not sure it is worth the drive.
