I have taken my family to Thurmond many times over the years. We would go on the river banks and over to the abandoned bridge, train station and homes. It was once a thriving community but now, only their memory and spirits linger behind. As one of my daughters and my grandson were with me, during this tour of Thurmond, we thought of how people lived back then. Their lives . I could imagine children running around barefoot and laughing as their daddy's worked the coal mines and their momma's conducted their family business. A much simplier time than now. Here is the ghost town of Thurmond.
