Johnsonville, Connecticut, once a thriving mill community turned Victorian Era tourist attraction, has now become a complete ghost town. The historic village has been abandoned three times, but this time, it’s been desolate for over 20 years. First inhabited in the 1830s, the area thrived until the 1950s when its first abandonment occurred.
Quite frankly, if someone wanted to recreate their own town, this is the place to do it. All 62 acres of this village are up for sale, with the bidding starting at $800,000.
The quaint area sits right along the Moodus River, complete with restaurant, general store, and plenty of colonial and Victorian homes.
