Explorer Checks Out an Abandoned Mining Town

What have you found out in the wilderness?

Well, this guy found an abandoned mining town from the 1890s.

Tag along with this explorer as he walks shows us around in the video below:

YouTuber Mobile Instinct decided to do some exploring in the South Dakota, and what he found is quite remarkable.

This abandoned mining town was built back in the 1890s and was completely vacant by the 1940s. The town folded when the mine closed, as many did in the boom-or-bust market.

When out in the wilderness, always keep your eyes open for signs from the past. The history lesson you might find could be incredible.
