Ghost Town in West Texas

Toyah School & Ghost Town | Reeves County, TX

This Texas frontier school was built in 1912 and served the community through the Great Depression when the town could no longer justify a large school. Enrollment decreased as the population began to relocate to look for work opportunities elsewhere.

The crumbling brick building was once a bank. The hollow house was once a home.

A powerful reminder that everything can change very quickly.
