Balm

Balm is a small city in Florida (Hillsborough County). I went here on 7/27/2015.

According to the Ghosttown website,

This town was originally named Doris, when it was established on May 14, 1902 but was later changed to Balm on June 7, 1902. Originated by the Hicks family in 1905, Balm was a farming community of the Hicks, Sweat, and Fox families. The first Post Office was the train station where the mail was hung outside and the train grabbed it while they went through town. The tracks are gone and the town is nothing more than a store and Post Office. Mr. and Mrs Sweat (85 years old) still live there. His father was the second postmaster and his wife was the third.
