POTD - Yukon, FL


POTD - Yukon, FL

The closed up Yukon, FL Post Office is one of a little strip of shops - which seems to be all that there is to Yukon, FL.   A little investigation turns up that Yukon was indeed a real town.  Now it's a Ghost Town, within the city of Jacksonville.  (more info here)  I see a field trip in my future rather than just a drive by!

Ummm...the porch light is on at the abandoned post office. Not going to fudge about it, but I am creeped out by that!!!
Of course, that does not stop me from returning to the photo to study it closely, looking for ghostly faces peering out of the windows etc...
Can we go visit this ghost town in Feb?

JB - I planned on taking you there as soon as I saw it! Oooh, I didn't notice the light, but yep, it's on. Creepy!

We pass a lot of ghost towns on the way to Mammoth Lakes each summer. You would love to take picture of them.

Not a ghost town at all. Go by there sometime and you'll see it's better taken care of now.
