Abandoned Town of Walpack New Jersey (Axis Video/Pine Barren Films)

Walpack was an abandoned town from the 1960's. The Plan was the government was going to dam up the rivers and flood the valley. So the government tried to buy out the residents for pennies on the dollar and then later by force, but the plan never went through due to economic issues. So the town lay dormant all these years. The historical society is now restoring the buildings for preservational usage. The location wasn't all that impressive to look at and only encompassed a few buildings. Each building was painted pure and innocent white and was kind of eerie since it was not populated. People still pass thru the town from time to time, and they are actually starting to install electricity to some of the buildings.
