Bustling town to off road fanatic theme park
Ghost Town (Unoccupied)
The town of Carnegie once boasted a population of 3,500 residents. Establishments within the town consisted of Hotels, Livery Stable, Bakery, Saloons, General Store and Post Office. The town was also home to the Carnegie Brick Company which employed mostly Italian workers who bunked in one of the two large company bunkhouses.
The town slowly dwindled in 1911 following the financial scare. And By 1912 most of the residents had departed and the post office was closed.
Nothing remains of the town today other than some scattered bricks and broken foundations. South of the former town is an early man archaeology site as well as an old brick kiln. The State built an off road vehicle recreation area over the former town site which has become quite popular among dirt bikes and quad riders. If you plan on exploring here you're going to need to ride!
