Located in Mecklenburg County, Virginia awaits an abandoned ghost town by the name of Union Level. As if frozen in time, this town has sat in disrepair for decades. While the exterior buildings crumble and slowly disappear, we’re left to imagine what life might have been like inside this once-bustling community. Let’s take a look at Union Level in Virginia, one of the most mysterious, abandoned ghost towns in the state:

While the notion of a ghost town might inspire visions of Old Western movie sets, there are plenty of them located right here in Virginia. One of the most famous examples is Union Level.

The horse and carriage line was eventually replaced by a temporary rail line. After trains no longer came through town, residents left altogether.

By the early 1900s, the town was completely abandoned. The fascinating thing, as you’ll notice in the video below, is that many of the residents seemed to leave some things behind in their former homes.

If you drive through this ghost town today, you’ll see an entire row of buildings, including a church, in disrepair.
