Ghost Towns and Drowned Towns of West Kootenay

Book - 1988
Rate this:
These are the stories of more than 50 relics of the West Kootenay. Arrowhead, Beaton and Needles are among the towns that were drowned. Waneta is a power dam; Jersey City was auctioned. Comaplix died one fiery night; Cody, Three Forks, Poplar, Waterloo, Goldfields, Gerrard, Brooklyn, Cascade and a host of others vanished. Leaning headboards in smothered cemeteries and cow parsnip covering the ruins of homes proclaim that people once lived in these and other communities.
