Barstow, Texas is not technically a ghost town, but it sure blurs the distinction. While most of the buildings downtown are falling apart, some 370 residents are still holding on and keeping this tiny Texas town on the map. Pictured here is what’s left behind of the post office and grocery store.

Remnants of a service station in Pecos, Texas. The town has had its ups and downs over the last few decades, with most of the buildings around town being marked as condemned. The town is now seeing a resurgence due to the oil boom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Broken down in Valentine, Texas. Population: 127. Each year thousands of people mail letters to their loved ones around Valentine’s Day to have it postmarked by this town. I’d like to think the owner of this truck was with their sweetheart at the time it was left stranded here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A gas station in Mentone, Texas. Mentone is the least populated county in America with just 86 residents. For reference, the town had five cafes, five gasoline stations, two hotels, two drugstores, two recreation halls, two barbershops, a dance hall, a machine shop, and a dry cleaner in 1931. Now all that remains in this gas station, which services people passing through and oil field workers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This church was built in 1910 in Porterville, Texas, a town abandoned after the Pecos River flooded in 1930. The church was relocated to nearby Mentone to be used as a school and social center. This church is the oldest building in Loving County, Texas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Cordero Store in Redford, Texas. The town sits on the border of Mexico, with the Rio Grande river separating it from it’s Mexican neighbor. The town had 89 residents in 2010. It’s unknown how many people live there currently, though the only thing that’s left is a few houses, a church, and this closed shop. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

All that’s left behind in Casa Piedra, Texas or “Rock House” in Spanish. The town throve until the 1930s, when it was hit by drought and depression. By the mid 30s, the town only had 10 remaining residents and by 1953 the post office had closed. Only two families live in the town to this day and it is considered a ghost town. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Texas is the second largest state, taking up 261,914 square miles of land in the United States. It’s closer for people in El Paso to drive to San Diego, California than it is for them to drive to the other side of Texas. Geographically, the state is different depending on which region you’re in. We’ve got rolling hills, rugged desert, great plains, and deeply wooded areas full of pine trees. While each part of Texas is drastically different, one thing is consistent everywhere you go… and that is our great, blue skies. Even though I took this photograph 450 miles from home, the big blue sky reminds me home is anywhere as long as I’m in Texas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
