- New Milford, New Hampshire
New Milford is a now-abandoned ghost town in New Hampshire,[where?] in the United States. By the turn of the 20th century, New Milford was a flourishing Victorian-era village overshadowed by the White Mountains. First incorporated in 1852 by working-class quarry workers and their following, New Milford enjoyed prosperity for many years, even a stint as a seasonal resort destination in the early 1900s. However, a succession of unfortunate disasters at the quarry site, the decline of rail-based tourism, the Great Depression, and the outbreak of World Wars all led to the abandonment of the town and the scattering of its few remaining citizens by the late 1940s.
