US Ghost Towns: Introduction

This short survey aims to collect information about your perceptions of ghost towns in the United States of America. I am particularly interested in finding out about any recent changes or damage to ghost towns you may have seen or heard about. 

The questionnaire will take just a few minutes to complete. All the information collected will be kept securely and in strictest confidence. It will not be possible to identify any particular individual from the results.

The survey forms part of ongoing research by Dr Louise Grove from Loughborough University in the United Kingdom. More information on Dr Grove's work can be found on the university website and her personal website.

If you have any questions about the survey you can find out more at, or contact Dr Grove on

By clicking 'next' you confirm that you are happy to take part in the study and understand your responses will be used to inform research and publications on ghost towns.

Many thanks for your time and enthusiasm.
