Along with the GPS pages, this index to all the locations featured in my magazine column should aid researchers and other ghost towners in finding the appropriate articles in which a specific location was mentioned.  Please be advised I DO NOT sell or give away copies of those articles, other than the few copies of extra magazines I have available on my website catalogue.


If you do not have copies of the articles, contact Western & Eastern Treasures Magazine and you can purchase the appropriate back issues from them.


Also, please note:  Western & Eastern Treasures is NOW on Facebook!  Check ‘em out and tell ‘em Gary sent you.
